Propeller Member Since 2022.
I was born in Toronto, Ontario. My artistry includes film video and photography. While watching films I will often ask myself “How did they get that shot?” and “How did they make me feel this way?” My practice began through curiosity of film cameras and the journey to the final shot. What I choose to capture and share are moments on my personal journey that are known throughout humanity.
What begins for me in what I capture, continues to expand. I hold a lot of empathy for humanity and want to encourage the sharing of the vulnerabilities and sometimes scary truths that we experience. When I shoot I don’t think; “this shot will mean this to other people or myself”. I choose to let the conversations of life live as I capture, and not define what I see but feel through what I’m seeing. I choose to include intimacy in terms of proximity of subjects but also in similar experiences like taking the train. I believe we are all on our own journeys which have the power to find and give encouragement by sharing our experiences that ultimately maintain the integrity of humanity.Sarah Okello
