Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Michael Chambers earned his BA (Honours) in Fine Arts degree at Toronto’s York University in 1983. Chambers has received numerous awards for his outstanding contributions in art and entertainment. His fascinating insight that defies conventional thinking has only propelled Chambers’ involvement into many creative projects. Chambers addresses controversial topics with his photographic artistry that reflect his diaspora. Some of these topics include social injustice, survival of the human spirit, AIDS awareness and multi-culturalism. For example, using African inspired art as the backdrop, Chambers recently held a photo shoot with an unknown African model with albinism in a quest to influence viewers to consider acceptance of body image and to celebrate beauty in all forms. Chambers work has been revered internationally and is perhaps one of the most iconic photographic artists on the Canadian landscape. His award-winning films and television credits include being the focus of Anton Wagner’s biographical documentary for CBC, The Photographer, An Artist's Journey. In addition, Michael's work was featured in a PBS special Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People, a Thomas Allen Harris film. The documentary won a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Documentary for 2015.
