EXHALE

Exhale by Erika War showcases portraits of diverse young Torontonian’s captured at various stages of the end of their youth and the beginning of adulthood. They represent insatiability, emptiness, joy, grief and precautiousness.

Vibrant colours, smoke & haze, bold expressions, and deep contrasts illuminate the various ways individuals feel overwhelmed by societal forces like oppression – whether it be for being a woman, a person of colour, and immigrant, or LGBTQ+.

Contrasting the coloured portraits with he black and white is to further juxtapose how different people cope in different ways.
