The Artist: Anne Bayin (Canadian)
Anne Bayin is a documentary photographer. Her career began as producer and on-air host of the weekly television program “CONNECTIONS” in Victoria, B.C., an eclectic mix of social issues, current affairs and arts. Her "found images" focus on storytelling and modern life.
The Story: "Everything has a transforming beauty if you take the time to see it. Wear and tear can be intriguing. The Japanese aesthetic of ‘wabi sabi’ celebrates the beauty of things imperfect and incomplete; things humble and unconventional... I came upon giant bales of shredded paper outside a factory in an industrial area of Toronto in January 2001.
What appeared from a distance indistinctive and unremarkable revealed, in close-up, juxtapositions of compressed culture: an unanticipated complexity of substance and design. The random mix of source materials – matte and gloss papers, newsprint, account ledgers, maps, fashion advertising – gave texture and collage effects.
The act of separating subject matter from context creates a new reality. That’s the adventure. I look for the moment when the world tilts a little and meanings blur." - Anne Bayin
