Picture A Sailboat
When I first heard about aphantasia, it took me a while to comprehend. The way it was explained to me was with an example:
Close your eyes. Picture a sailboat. What do you see?
Some people can see a lot of detail, and some can see a little. Having aphantasia means you simply see nothing. I immediately linked this condition to my interest in photography. It renewed my perspective, and made me question some things.
This zine is about hope and optimism during difficult times. It includes 33 images taken from April to September 2020, in Toronto and Ottawa.
Seeing a decaying building with a giant "OPENING SOON" sign sparked this idea. I wanted this to be the thread that connected all my images - during constant bad news in the world during 2020, people were still able to put on a happy face and maintain some sense of normalcy.
