RMG Exposed 2017 website.
The Robert McLaughlin Gallery sponsors an exhibition each year for the winner of the Best Overall Submission during the RMG’s annual fundraiser, RMG Exposed. The purpose of this prize is to raise awareness of contemporary photographers and their work and at last fall’s event, Canada and Brazil-based photographer Stephanie Foden’s work, Front Door, took the highest award.
Her exhibition Saudade da Bahia looked at her latest series of works, taken while she has been living in Brazil, and entitled Saudade da Bahia. A graduate of Durham College’s Journalism program, she has been documenting the Brazilian state of Bahia since 2013. As she notes, travel has affected not only her life, but also her practice as a photographer. She writes about her experience photographing in Brazil:
Being an avid adventurer since a young age, travel has played a decisive role in shaping Foden’s life and craft. She travels through non-tourist areas, absorbing the sounds, smells and energy while simultaneously enthralled by the area’s history that includes the fact that Bahia’s capital was the largest slave trading port in the Americas.
