Kacey Jeffers makes photographs that borrow the sensibilities of fashion photography to tell stories about the world around him. Jeffers' vulnerable and personal series, Every Day is Another Chance, was made upon his return to Nevis from New York City in 2018; it was shortlisted for the prestigious 2019 Sony World Photography Award. That project led to his 2020 series Uniform, which presents views of subtle rebellion, playfulness, and the perseverance of youth. I invited Alexandra Gooding, an emerging Toronto-based arts writer and researcher originally from the Caribbean, to join me in interviewing Kacey about his photography practice.

John Hryniuk is FFOTO's latest addition to our roster of exclusive artists. John began making photographs as an adolescent, going on to build a successful career as a commercial photographer and photojournalist. While taking on editorial assignments, he also pursued a parallel fine art practice.
John concentrates on making photographs that tell human stories in relatable ways. His observations of the absurdities of everyday situations suggest the fullness of his human subjects' lives - the wry smile of Anthony Bourdain, the playfulness of the Covid portraits, mischievous monks, cowboys, and street vendors.
To introduce collectors to these photographs, we asked John to tell us a bit about his background, his art practice, and stories behind some of his compositions.
