Writer-in-Residence

Gallery 44 hosts an annual writer in residence to provide a platform for emergent conversations in the expanded field of photography. The texts sometimes respond to themes relating to the exhibitions or programming themes or at times diverge in ways that can offer new insights to the contemporary visual field.

He is a content creator for the online publication Public Parking, a project for highlighting the working practices of emerging creators and thinkers. He is also a writing contributor for Akimbo. His studio labour is project-based and realized through photographic print media and painting processes. He is interested in how the legacies of those mediums continue to shape prevailing perceptions of group identities.
