Short bio…

I am a graduate of Ryerson University School of image arts (2011). My current photographic work consists of large-scale collages of gelatin-silver prints produced from multiple 4×5 negatives and finished in Beeswax. Unframed and tangible, the exhibition of my artwork challenges the prevailing convention of a photographic image being a single flat surface exhibited within a frame.

You shoot film because…

In my work I use analogue techniques such as double and triple exposures as well as photograms to create fragmented images that are both real and fantastical. The beautiful tonal range and the weight of gelatin-silver paper accompanied with the extreme detail that is achieved when using a 4×5 camera are a central part of my creative process. These techniques and qualities show the enduring value of analogue in contemporary photography.
