"My photography project focuses on peoples artistic talents. Through my lens I wanted to show my audience that talent is a skill by snapping each picture at the right moment. I was inspired by a quote from a famous photographer."
”What I like about photography is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”- Karl Legerfeld
My photos were inspired by a short poem:
"Love is a cycle
When you love, you get hurt.
When you get hurt, you hate.
When you hate, you try to forget.
When you try to forget, you start missing
And when you start missing….
You’ll eventually fall in love again”

Somewhere between reality and imagination we always have the feeling that someone might follow us. We all hear voices in our mind. My photos represent those voices in our head, those shadows behind us.
Graffiti, The Modern Art by Susan Mera
" I wanted to use photography as a medium to show other types of art. I love graffiti because it communicates an idea to the entire community. It’s really interesting that each graffiti artist has his or her own way to paint and express their own ideas, political opinions or event their own personal story. In these photos you can see how focused the artists are when they paint and also the way they dress, which identifies their style."
Eaton Center Corner: A Fun Place to Go by Mavis Lin
"All of my photos were taken outside of the Eaton Center, around Yonge and Dundas. This is a great place where anyone can go to have fun in the summertime. people of all ages and cultures come here because there are so many things to see, do and it’s free. Lots of people put on shows to show off their talents, others come to relax, unwind and have fun!"
Nostalgic Habits - Carlos Fernandez
"Each of the things in my photographs represent important parts of my childhood. The baby duck candle was a gift from a friend after a brief stint I spent in the hospital. The ring says C.A.R and was a gift from my mom. It represents my core, my soul, my essence, the thing inside me that will never change because it defines me. The T- Rex was/is my favourite toy. It represents all the things you hope to avoid as a child, responsibilities, adulthood, the real world and all its dangers."
Photos taken by Victoria Mejicano for this summers Vivacity.
My Home Town by Yan He
"My photos represent parts of my culture and where I come from. These photos were taken in ChangZhou, China, when I was lucky to go back for a visit this past spring.
The first photo expresses the common belief in Buddha in my country, and the building is a traditional architecture called DaXiongBaoDin. People go there to ask for safety and luck.
The second photo was taken at my grandmother’s house in the countryside. In this area they do not have advanced technical tools to help them to deal with daily life. You can see from the photo, one person is pumping water up and down and the other is washing their dishes.
The third photo shows a typical house where people live in the country. These types of homes were built entirely by hand. The roof is not flat because in my hometown, it rains a lot and this kind of roof helps the water flow down quickly.”
Vivacity is almost a week away!
