In Conversation: Denis Farley

Denis Farley uses photography to explore elements of nature alongside concepts of measurement, observation, surveillance, and data transmission. In his latest work, made primarily under Covid-19 lockdown conditions, Farley returns to past projects for inspiration. We invited Denis to participate in an email Q&A to discuss his art practice and how it led to his two latest series, Cosmologies and R&D

Robert Giard: Iconic Portraits

Robert Giard: Iconic Portraits

Robert Giard (1939 - 2002) was a portrait, landscape, and figure photographer best known for his project Particular Voices: Portraits of Gay and Lesbian Writers. In 1985, inspired by a performance of Larry Kramer’s play “The Normal Heart,” which focused on the AIDS crisis in New York, Giard set about documenting a wide survey of significant gay and lesbian literary figures in straightforward, but sometimes witty and playful portraits. For the next two decades Giard photographed over 600 famous and emerging LGBTQ+ novelists, playwrights, poets, and performance artists.

In Conversation: Kyle Lasky and Wynne Neilly

On March 31, I met with Kyle Lasky and Wynne Neilly via Zoom to talk about Have / Hold. The artists were keen to discuss how they developed this project and their other pursuits -- often finishing each other’s sentences. Our condensed conversation touches on their longstanding, long-distance friendship, the importance of vulnerability in their art practice, the role of social media in LGBTQ+ activism, and where they see their artistic partnership heading.

Artist Spotlight: François Quévillon

Artist Spotlight: François Quévillon

The interdisciplinary art practice of François Quévillon investigates how technology affects or redefines human cognition, culture, the environment, and our relationships to space, to time, and to one another. His work addresses planetary changes as well as those affecting contemporary media. 

Often what the viewer sees in Quévillon's compositions seems uncanny or alien -- yet somehow still recognizable as being part of "our world". These machine-rendered 'ways of seeing' reflect our environment and experiences back to us while reminding us that our familiar, human-centred construct of time and space is but one way of processing reality.

Barbara Alper: In Conversation - Vintage Prints

Barbara Alper’s long career as a photojournalist, street photographer, and fine art photographer is well-represented in our selection of items available through our partnership with Getty Images Gallery. Now, Barbara is opening her personal photo archive to offer collectors access to a selection of vintage prints.

Barbara and I got together via Zoom to talk about her art practice and some favourite pictures from her archives. We covered a lot of ground, which I’ve broken up into two elements; a 15-minute video tour of vintage prints conducted by Barbara from her studio in New York City, followed by additional transcribed commentary from Barbara outlining aspects of her life and career.

In Conversation: Lynne Heller

Still Newfoundland is the latest project by artist Lynne Heller, and the first series of works by Heller offered to collectors exclusively via FFOTO. Heller’s post-disciplinary art practice melds creative pursuits that are not automatically thought of as being complementary. Always creatively expressive, a persistent injury prompted Heller to pivot from a career as a dancer into the visual arts. While making art, she completed an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, followed by a PhD focused on feminist practice in online culture at University College, Dublin...
