About the artists
Hansel Alonzo is a photographer born in Toronto. In 2012, Hansel attended and graduated from the Remix Project’s Art of Photography program. Initially, he began filming videos for friends however within a few months he realized his passion was for still images. His unorthodox style (influenced by his film background) has allowed him to stand out amongst his peers in shooting portraiture, fashion and landscape imagery.
Kadeem Ellis is an easy going spirit who loves to capture honest moments with people through his photography. Heavily inspired by music and nightlife, he is passionate about documenting emotions inspired by music and moments experienced during the night and reliving those experiences in the studio with his subjects. Growing up in the city of Toronto, Kadeem has had the opportunity to explore his style freely amongst a diverse range of peers and strangers. As a graduate of the Remix Project’s Art of Photography program, His aim now is to share the visual representation of this experience all over the world.
Buruk Kebedom is a photographer from Toronto, Canada. His introduction to his love of photography came in 2010 at a photography workshop. He has since graduated from The Remix Project during which he began shooting events and making his own creative projects. Having graduated his focus has shifted to portraits, landscapes, studio and fine art photographs. Buruk is a storyteller and feels his photographs tell his stories better than any vocal or written telling can. He is fulfilled by the fact that others can make their own interpretations of his artwork.
Ruth Titus is a Toronto based artist whose work focuses on human emotions. Developing a passion for photography in high school, she studied for a time at George Brown College before being accepted into The Remix Project where she was able to begin to refine her craft in earnest. Soon after graduation Titus was tapped to manage the photography studio at The Remix Project’s for-profit venture and was very quickly after that hired to assist in the delivery of the photography program itself. Having devoted much of the last few years to her community, Ruth is beginning to refocus on her own career and explore her style of portraiture, documentary and editorial photography.
