Indigenous Art 2021 will be running September 11 – November 20, 2021.
Meet Artist, Lisa MacIntosh
I have been a photographer most of my life. I have photographed many well known and accomplished artists/musicians but my most heartfelt work is with people; everyday people with a story to tell. I am thankful for vision, for being able to read and relay a story through my lens. I rarely direct but prefer to rely on patience and trust, watching for moments to unfold. I am a story teller.
‘Water First’ may be the most important photo I have taken to date. Standing behind my lens, having just met Lucy, I was lost in her message. There is power here, community, challenge, truth, injustice. There is a story of culture, its message is raw and shameful. Lucy unknowingly pushed me to ask questions, investigate, feel anger, ache for change.
That is the power of a photo.
