Event description

Description

Richmond Hill Public Library is launching the Photographer in Residence program. Led by Petrija Dos Santos, our first Photographer in Residence, the participants will explore Richmond Hill as a place and as a community. The exploration will result in a collective Richmond Hill’s “selfie,” a group exhibition displayed at the Library.

Petrija Dos Santos is a photo-based artist presently living and working between Canada, Japan, and Serbia. Her work examines tradition, collective identity, and the intersection of cultural practice and shifting economic landscapes.

Petrija holds a BFA with distinction from the Photography Studies program at Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts. She has participated in numerous exhibitions at venues such as the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre, Artspace at the Gladstone, Ryerson University, and the University of Brighton (UK). Her work has been featured in several publications including SAN, the Serbian Canadian Magazine, and Function Magazine.
