Artist member since 2018
Jordan Nahmias is a photographer living and working in Toronto, Canada. Traditionally capturing images of places and things which he comes across in travel and daily life, Jordan’s evolving practice uses photography to investigate history, memory and nostalgia while simultaneously speaking to issues of solitude, loss and abandonment. His most recent solo show was a part of Contact 2017, and he has participated in numerous curated group shows, including at Gallery 44, Red Head Gallery and Coldstream Gallery.

Why is it important for people to have art in their home or life?
It's important for people to have art in their home and life because art causes us to be present - we can, even briefly, leave aside the distractions of our workdays, family lives, and so forth, and instead pay attention to what is in front of us which, ideally, is an image/creation that we've chosen to live with and enjoy.
