Welcome to Foto pHix! This blog is intended to share my knowledge and passion for the broad subject of cultural heritage, the arts and more specifically that of photography. I recently completed my Masters in Photographic Preservation and Collections Management at Ryerson University in Toronto, Ontario, and I enjoy learning about the many uses of photography as a contemporary form of communication as well as its cultural history. I would like this blog to be a platform to discuss current exhibitions, artists, as well as ongoing research into the subject of photography, including its many histories & cultural contexts. As with most blogs, it is a work in progress, and that is what is so great about blogs – there is no final goal, it is in the journey and community – so feel free to join in the discussion!
Along with working at the Art Gallery of Ontario, I have my own consultation practice specializing in the care and management of photographic collections and I also occasionally focus on developing my own photography, which I have been practicing since I was given my first 35 mm film camera at the age of 13. To learn more about my consultation services or my photography, check out the links below.
