A couple of days ago I received the exciting news that I was selected to exhibit three works at the Urban Photography Festival in Toronto (Canada) later this year.
Toronto Urban Photography Festival (TUPF) is an annual event that adds a critical voice to contemporary photographic practices within the context of the urban. TUPF uses critical insights of urban environments and photography to question what constitutes both the urban in context of the city, as well as street within the context of photography. By engaging photographic practitioners and visual urbanists, TUPF creates a dialogue surrounding how the city is imagined and viewed as part of our daily human fabric. TUPF was established in 2012 and first run in 2013.
My work was selected by 9 board members and 4 external judges as well (2 former TUPF winners, 1 professional photographer who has shown in many galleries across their career, and one other photographer with extensive knowledge and background in photography).
The three photos found in this blog are being exhibited. Photos will be printed and framed in Canada.
Toronto Urban Photography Festival is being held from the 10th of June till the 25th of June 2016. If you live anywhere nearby make sure to check it out. The location is Paint Cabin (723 Gerrard Street East @ Degrassi Street). I’m trying my best to be there myself as well for a few days.
More information can be found on the website of the festival.
