The Power Plant

Documentary & Still-Life Photography with Anthony Gebrehiwot

Wed Sep 14 2016

1:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club in Regent Park


Anthony Gebrehiwot has been selected as the Artist-in-Residence serving the Toronto Kiwanis Boys and Girls Club in Regent Park to teach youth the fundamentals of photography with his workshop series, All Eyes on Me. Exploring documentary and still life photography, youth will learn how to use cameras as artistic tools to tell personal stories about the issues that affect their lives and investigate themes related to The Power Plant’s Fall 2016 Exhibition Season. Their final project will draw upon a series of photographs, by Yto Barrada (born Paris; lives New York City and Tangier, Morocco), of children’s toys by Berber tribes of Morocco’s Atlas Mountain region. Over the course of the program, youth will photograph a series of personal objects to create symbolic self portraits.
