My Story

25 Jul – 6 Aug 1995

Recently, my work has been dealing with the idea of being a woman, or more specifically, a black woman. I have also been experimenting with photography in the forms of photo text, photo installation, and photography in book form. As a black woman in Nova Scotia, it’s important to me to continue doing personal work, not for any kind of sympathy, but to make people aware. Although I deal mostly with self-portraiture, my work is not solely about me, instead, it encompasses the struggle of many women of colour. At present times, I am involved in a group show that uses photo installation.” This exhibition of photographic self-portraits by Rebecca Fisk was specially selected by former curatorial coordinator Andrea Ward as part of a series of emerging artist exhibitions.
