Antonio Giacchetti is a writer and visual artist based in Southern Ontario, currently completing a BFA in Photography at OCAD University. His practice includes a variety of experimental image making methods, conceptual and studio based photography as well as short performative and experimental films.

Recent works have explored visual articulations of existential philosophy, deconstructions of the photographic image, mark-making, and notions of home, memory, and formative experiences from the context of the male form.

His work has been exhibited at various locations in Toronto and Hamilton, Ontario as well as internationally in Tampere, Finland and Berlin, Germany.

Michael Seleski, Spectrum, 2016

Canadian-born, Toronto based fashion photographer, director  and image-maker Michael Seleski seeks to explore  individuality and identity through high impact visuals.  Seleski pursued their BFA in photography at Toronto’s OCAD University and was accepted into the Mastered Photography Program with Nick Knight in 2015.  Their work showcases their ability to shoot both fashion and  portraiture to a consistently innovative and modern effect. With a bold aesthetic and refined use of lighting Seleski looks to the future of fashion image making while challenging notions of the gender binary and beauty.   Seleski’s inspirations are varied, culled from contemporary art, design, music, and literature.
