I'm very honoured and grateful to have won the Edward Burtynsky Grant for my new project Abendlied. The award brings me one step closer to publishing this series which I have worked on for the past 7 years.
A new piece from my Miss Solitude series was included in the group show In Plain Sight as part of the Capture Photo Festival program.
Images from my Lying Still project accompany a 12 page special on international women's day in the German newspaper taz – die tageszeitung.
Miss Solitude : Cuttings made it on the Humble Arts Foundation list of A Number of Really Good Photobooks Published in 2017. There are so many gems on this list, so I'm very happy and honoured to be included!
I'm excited to be joining the Faculty of Arts at Emily Carr University as a sessional instructor.
I contributed one image from Miss Solitude to the new online show "On Beauty" at Humble Arts Foundation. Roula Seikaly and Jon Feinstein curated a thought provoking exhibition with many gems and new discoveries.
"The images that we received and ultimately chose to exhibit reinforce that photographic interests and practices are as wildly divergent as ever, and that artists are emboldened to explore subjects that two decades ago wouldn’t enjoy a wider viewing audience. That exploration, that desire to subvert dominant attitudes toward or definitions of beauty, suggests to us that a burdensome cultural stranglehold is loosening, and may someday be broken outright.
My project Lying Still will be part of the Exhibition trash cans for hearts and people have no soul at Fotofestiwal in Lodz, Poland. The show is curated by Augustin Rebetez and runs from June 1st til June 11th.
Tonight I will talk with Grant Arnold, curator at the Vancouver Art Gallery, about my recent work Miss Solitude and the role of the photograph as both image and found object in my practice. Join us at Access Gallery at 7pm.
We just launched a limited edition printed folio, Miss Solitude: Cuttings, comprised of images from my Miss Solitude series and eight poems composed by poet and novelist Marguerite Pigeon. It's now available at Access Gallery or you can order it through this website.
