An Artist's Morning by the Water
I met Oksana when we were both studying poetry in the Maritimes. Since then, both of us have broadened our creative pursuits. I was thrilled to photograph her in her studio and by the water, her second home.
In this shoot, the alchemy of light on the room, on the subject, act like a metaphor for the artist's own exploration of the shifting, nuanced character of the shorelines. Photographing Oksana's practice was a process of discovery; studying light, watching her at work, actively looking as we walked the boardwalk in The Beaches in Toronto.
