Photo of the Week: April-lea Hutchinson

April-lea Hutchinson


April is a photographer from Toronto, Ontario.She has a fondness for film and a deep desire to photograph people as people, breaking from expected norms of beauty. Beyond the aesthetic qualities imparted by instant film and long exposures, her empathetic relationship with the person in front of the camera infuses her images with comfortable intimacy and perhaps a touch of nostalgia. She creates timeless images using various film formats including Polaroid. She is a purist at heart. She is also an editor and art director for two international magazines, Supplementaire Art & Fashion Journal and 62nd floor.
