Nominated by MaryAnn Camilleri (Founder & director of Magenta Foundation, Canada)
Kyle Jeffers works with the industrial landscape of Ontario, Canada to create sculptural images that dance around pylons, crates, and warehouses. He has developed a singular style where shape, light and colour come together in sharp, precise contrast. His vibrant, graphic, artfully structured images reveal places and things in a new light. His compositions invite us in with humour and otherworldliness, nostalgia and the avant-garde.
This is a series of images shot in 2020 during the lockdowns from the pandemic. With a lack of resources in my household, I would scavenge and find interesting objects and create still lifes with these objects. This project was a way to keep myself exploring photography within my space and creating compelling imagery with a limited amount of resources.
