Fire Line (2019-2021) is a series of larger than life-sized charcoal and graphite portraits examining the men and women dedicating their lives to fighting forest fires within the vast boreal regions of Northern Ontario. An often dangerous and unseen occupation, the renderings are an attempt to recognize the labor and sacrifice of those keeping the forests, wildlife and dispersed residents safe from disaster. In these portraits, the subjects are no longer concealed within the trees but instead are revealed to be the faces of our front line, the silent rangers of our security. Fire Line is an extension of Globush’s ongoing visual documentation of life in the North, recognizing the unknown hard labor posts it demands and the people that make the wild northern environment truly unique.
