Hard Knock World

It’s a hard knock world for us where the road less traveled will let you walk through shared realities that we face as humanity. Off the beaten path, our identity has become one with this land, where every culture can be embraced by sharing the similarities that make us different.

The “Hard Knock World” series is a compilation that pulls from my photography works across the world. It highlights a global village faced with hard realities that we share as humanity. This work is dedicated to the road less traveled and the beautiful people that I have met along the way

Inside Out: Culture

We are more than a lifestyle, we are a culture, we are people.  Toronto is home, home to me, home to many. A multicultural mosaic of where the world meets. A community where identities can sometimes clash but where we can collectively create change as humanity.

“Inside Out: Culture” was created in support of the Inside Out Project by JR, a 2011 TED prize winner who challenged the boundaries of our world through art. Through portraiture, he provided communities with a voice to share their messages. This work is dedicated to cultural diversity that connect us as a campus community.
