Power

Kristina Dittmar

In this series, I went behind the scenes to look at the process female body builders go through to sculpt themselves into what the contestants perceive as ‘the perfect body’. I came into the competition wanting to form a more concrete opinion of these practices, but left with more questions.

Taxidermy Is Goodbye

Vuk Dragojevic

Manuel Jan owns the last working taxidermy shop in Toronto. Blind in one eye, and suffering from chronic vertigo, he continues to prepare and mount animals while reflecting on his future, his unconventional diet, and his mortality.

Uneasy

Chris Buck

Uneasy is a book of Chris Buck’s portraits of the famous from 1986 to 2016. For three decades Buck has been carving out a unique space in the world of celebrity portraiture, capturing its ineffability - its danger, its oddness, its warped sense of reality.
