“For me the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity, the master of the instant which, in visual terms, questions and decides simultaneously. In order to "give a meaning" to the world, one has to feel oneself involved in what one frames through the viewfinder.”
― Henri Cartier-Bresson
Just call me Kris.
You can find me somewhere between Canada and Germany. When I was seven, I bought my first fujifilm sport camera and have been shooting ever since. In 2016, I graduated OCAD University, since then I've found my love for curation and project coordination. My individual pursuits attempt to merge the gap between art and narrative. I want to bring people in communities together to foster human connection and open up space for understanding.
My most recent projects navigate intersectionality. I use photography, both film and digital as forms of documentation to research and explore social constructs of human identity, cultural beliefs and national origins within foreign places. I also collage to cope with political matters and travel to find ends of the earth that feel like home.
I call all of this... The Art of Storytelling.
