There are so many wondrous creators in and around the Calgary area. The canvas changes – skin, paper, and film. From tattooers, silkscreen printers, to photographers – the focus of this selection is capturing the perspective of the artist. 

I have been incredibly fortunate to connect with these folks and attempt to gain a better understanding of their processes’. 

TREX Artist Feature

Liam Kavanagh-Bradette & Nahanni McKay

TREX is touring an exhibition titled ‘Habituate, Acclimate’ from September 2020 until August 2022 featuring the photography of artists Liam Kavanagh-Bradette and Nahanni McKay.

Habituate, Acclimate is presented by the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Travelling Exhibition Program (TREX) in partnership with Exposure: Alberta’s Photography Festival.

For this project, I was presented with questions from TREX as a starting point to interview these two artists. From that point, I shot and edited this video for a more in-depth look at the artists in this exhibition and their thoughts behind their photography. This has been a favourite project to date and I look forward to future collaborations with TREX.
