Bahar Habibi is a contemporary artist whose media range includes photography, film, bookmaking, and public art. Her most recent work addresses her desire to immediately respond to time and place, uncovering unexpected moments within the mundane.
While at WSW, she built a pinhole camera with materials found in the studio to create unfamiliar scenes, obscured by light and shadow, from life around the studio. Bahar holds a BFA in Photography from the Emily Carr University of Art and Design and has studied at the International Summer School of Photography in Latvia. Immediately after her residency, she started Ryerson University’s Film and Photography Preservation and Collections Management Program.
