Canadian photographer Marilyn Westlake captures many facets of the historic sites she travels to: the secrets of lost cultures in Latin America, the architectural legacies of Havana, the poignancy of a dwindling Jewish colony in Argentina and elsewhere in South America. Marilyn looks to the past for patterns that drive our lives today.



"I am drawn to the remnants of our past, hoping they will whisper some secrets of the human condition.
