PhotoSensitive

We are forever grateful to the talented photographers who have given their time, energy and creativity to PhotoSensitive. All accomplished artists in their own right, each photographer has a generosity of spirit and a sensibility that allows them to see life. With each assignment, the photographers take on the responsibility of entering into people's lives, seeing and learning, and becoming more human.

Here, you will find details of our photographer friends, their PhotoSensitive work and links to their own websites. These pages are dedicated to those talented individuals who have given freely their time and energy to help us realize our visions. Thank you.

Art Perry
PROJECTS
Art Perry is not only one of Canada’s best-kept underground secrets; he’s also a bona-fide bohemian guru. For forty years Perry’s life has engaged, befriended, supported, taught and documented the often-marginal cultural figures he admires. Best known for his Penguin Putnam publication THE TIBETANS: photographs – the result of five years travel throughout Himalayan Buddhist and nomadic communities – Perry has paralleled this photographing and writing about oppressed world communities with his ongoing religious belief in and valuing of the holiness within outsider culture, culture that goes counter to the mainstream. An associate professor in cultural studies at Emily Carr University, Vancouver, Art Perry teaches the marriage of art and life. In his lectures on the Beat Generation he continues to practice what he preaches: art, poetry, music come from the extremes of living. As a result Perry’s silver print portraits of counterculture icons carry an empathy and deep passionate commitment to creative bohemian outlaws.
