Alanah Correia takes a picture a day

A Year in a Life
A Year in a Life

Alanah Corriea shares her world in A Year in a Life, an imaginative and youthful exploration on life. Corriea, a recent high school graduate and a member of ViewPoint Gallery since age 15, describes herself as "the type of person who changes every five seconds." She brings out her dark and playful side in her photos. The exhibit features 365 photos to represent each day of Corriea's life from August 2010 to August 2011. Her images show a young artist experimenting with light, colour and contrast. A few standouts include the darkness of number 33 with black marks across Corriea's bare back and the playfulness in number 65 with legs covered in bright pink stockings hanging upside down on the wall. There's also a touch of irony in Corriea's work---her head is in the clouds in number 68 with white cloud images covering her head. What sets her work apart is her use of children in not-so-familiar situations. In number 324, a young girl is about to stab a young boy in the back. I'm guessing that wasn't a very good day.

To September 2, ViewPoint Gallery, 1272 Barrington Street, 420-0854
