Gallery Turner Park May Exhibition: Pedal-Driven

Exhibition by Andrea Kita

​This collection of photographs is inspired by active transportation. Shadows and silhouettes capture bicycles in both urban and natural settings. As someone who has cycled for work, recreation and travel I am mindful of how cycling enhances my experience. Living in Hamilton, I  contribute to the local art community to  create dialogue of our shared experience across communities, cultures and countries. I work primarily in black and white, using both traditional hand-printed dark room and digital printing techniques.

In my life's journeys, both at home and afar, I am drawn to capture the intersection of vibrancy and potential in the real world environments that I explore.  My lens is an optimistic one and I am drawn to capture dynamic informal settings for public life that are essential for the health of both our communities and ourselves.
