This piece involves an inside look into the creative process of five photographic artists. This installation is at the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa, in the studio space, the darkroom, and the digital lab.
Based in the Ottawa-Gatineau region, Andrew Carson, Olivia Johnston, Jennifer Stewart, Alli Asudeh, Sarai Strikefoot and Whitney Lewis-Smith are photo-based artists interested in pushing the boundaries of their medium. In 2012, they participated in Ottawa’s inaugural Nuit Blanche with their event Stills in Motion, a piece involving 7 separate projections of different artists’ work, exploring themes of movement and stasis. The event was held at Saint Brigid’s Centre for the Arts, and was a central stop in the Nuit Blanche circuit with over 2000 people in attendance.
