Feb 19, 2014 — Since 2009, Ontario aerial photographer Louis Helbig has been collecting stories and memories of life along the St. Lawrence River before and after Inundation Day (July 1, 1958), when Canadian and American villages along the St. Lawrence were flooded and thousands of people relocated, so the St. Lawrence Seaway could come into being. Helbig's "Sunken Villages" project includes images and stories about the communities that have been hidden under the St. Lawrence Seaway for over 50 years.
For the last few years, Helbig has arranged exhibitions of his birds-eye view of the underwater remnants of houses and streets on the Canadian side of the Seaway.
