Hannah Campbell is an emerging artist based in Vancouver - Coast Salish Territories. Hannah completed her B.F.A. at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and has exhibited work throughout Vancouver. Her work has gone on to win multiple awards including the Canon Photography Award and the Gordon Smith Top Visual Artist award. Hannah uses art as a medium to share stories and create collective and shared experiences between the artist and the viewer. Much of her recent work is an exploration of how imagery, storytelling and memories are connected and works in these themes through social engagement with the public.
These photographs are part of a larger series titled Arctic Fiction. This series was produced during an artist residency in Svalbard, Norway in the Arctic Circle. The photograph series documents this dynamic landscape of the Arctic, one that is quickly and forever changing due to climate change. Part of the project was documenting a place that would never be seen the same for future generations, documenting a changing history. The title Arctic Fiction reflects how many people treat the natural environment as far away almost fictional places that they don’t need to protect or look after. Although it is what we utterly depend on for our own survival we often feel detached from our environmental surroundings. Her photos of the mountainous archipelago and the abandoned Soviet mining camps are striking for their composition, subject matter, and solitude. Still only in her 20s, Hannah Campbell is one to watch.

Jamie Evrard is an established Vancouver artist who is a well-renowned for her still-life and floral paintings. In addition to her paintings, though, Evrard has been documenting graffiti for over 10 years, mostly in Rome, Paris, and New York.
"When I travel I feel compelled to take photographs, not pictures of monuments or hotels, or even the friends I travel with, but rather images that capture the zeitgeist of the place. I’ve been to my favourite city, Rome, many many times now, and for a while it seemed I had taken all of the photographs I could of the place. Then, some years ago graffiti began to appear…..not just the ubiquitous spray painted squiggles that now encircle some of Rome’s most lovely piazzas like a dirty bathtub ring, but more cogent, smart, funny, and sometimes political, images. The ephemeral in the eternal city has caught my eye. Arresting as they are, these marks are easy to miss as you explore the rich texture of Rome; perhaps most tourists do not see these messages at all….
Now almost wherever I travel I find graffiti. People are taking more and more care to express what they have to say, often using elaborate stencils, many colours, careful drawing or collage to create their subversive messages.People have written on drawn forever on other people’s walls and monuments–the Coptics inscribed their unmistakable script on Egyptian temples, and etched their crosses deep into ancient pillars. Italian explorers and tourists back in the 1800s proudly and neatly inscribed their names high up on ancient monuments in exotic lands, wrote their names in smoke in painted prehistoric caves.
Collecting graffiti as I do year after year I wonder if perhaps I will begin to see some trajectory of ideas, some evolving conciousness in the places I visit. More likely, I will just enjoy myself snooping around back alleys and finding cryptic markings on persimmon coloured walls, and adding to my strange collection."
