Admission throughout the exhibit’s run is open to all and is free of charge.
Arianne Angela Solis photographs young Filipinos while exploring the question, “Where are the young Filipino people in this city and where do they stand?” Through a series of photos and first-hand stories, she delves into their lives in Winnipeg as both young immigrants and first-generation Filipino-Canadians. She uses film for its rawness to depict and capture the faces of her subjects. Arianne’s photography aims to turn people’s attention towards education and immigration; at the same time it serves as a bridge to understand the definition of her existence in a place that is, up to now, both familiar and foreign to her.
