- 6: STREET – SoTeeOh Solo: May 1-13
Opening Reception: Friday May 1st, 7-11pm
Exhibition Dates: May 1 – 13, 2015
This contemporary exhibition explores a current digital street photography movement from a uniquely Toronto perspective. A blend of design, architecture, urban grit, cityscapes, and street fashion – SoTeeOh employs an urban guerrilla approach to photography to create staged compositions in dynamic environments. Significant post digital processing is also a component of this style and aesthetic, producing images that are rooted in the urban scape but also feel slightly surreal.
Toronto born, SoTeeOh’s earliest memories are of the commotion and chaos of Toronto’s urban center in the mid 1980′s. It is a fascination that has influenced his entire body of creative work. Drawing on any and all facets of urban existence in a multicultural mecca, SoTeeOh’s photography can be characterized by a hyper-keen attention to details from graffiti tags in back alleys to the arichetecture of the financial district. SoTeeOh uses these elements to carefully weave his own narrative of life in Toronto. Although primarily a photographer, he often works with video and paint to actualize his concepts.
As a photographer his work has been selected by Instagram as a featured photographer. He has also been featured by local websites such as BlogTO and Modern Toronto. He has done commissioned work for events such as Scotia Bank Nuit Blanche and MANIFESTO and his photography has been featured in music videos for artists such as ELMNT and Iman Omari. He posts daily snapshots from across the city on both his own site and as the photographer for 1LOVETO’s instagram account displaying an eye for details often overlooked.

- OCAD Photo Thesis: ‘The Fortune of Having Been There’
27 emerging artists from OCAD University’s photography thesis program present their graduate work in the exhibition, The Fortune of Having Been There, as part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival
Toronto, ON, April 13, 2014 – The exhibition, The Fortune of Having Been There (The Project Gallery, May 14 to June 10, 2015) – showcases the work of 27 graduates of OCAD’s photography thesis program. This month long exhibition, curated into three distinct shows by students from OCAD’s Criticism and Curatorial Practices program, introduces the next generation of local artists and curators.
Volume I (May 14 – 24), curated by Tori Maas. This exhibition brings together images and objects from artists’ interactions with space and site, the landscapes they inhabit, and the tension created by the collision of public and private lives. Opening Friday May 15, 5-8pm.
Volume II (May 25 – June 2), curated by Sara Nicole England. The gateway into this exhibition is the idea of “doubling.” Included works incorporate subject matter that mirrors the “double nature” of photography; twinning, duplication, generation, imagined selves and masquerade are all at play. Opening Thursday May 28, 5-8pm.
Volume III (June 3 – 10), curated by Stephanie Peikert. As humans, we often associate ourselves with external entities in order to ground us in our journey. Exploring the relationship between individuals and objects, works in this exhibit reveal the associations, tensions and struggles inherent to identity and self-discovery. Opening Friday June 5, 5-8pm.
These events are open to the public and press. The artists and curator of each volume will be in attendance during the respective opening reception. For a full list of participating artists please view the exhibition website: ocadphotothesis2015.tumblr.com.
