Pokorny_Icarus Soaring

Atia Pokorny is a Toronto-based photographer and art conservator. Armed with her camera, she has always been keen on recording her surroundings, travels and work. This interest eventually became a more sustained and serious endeavour, drawing on her background in architecture and a continued lifetime engagement with art. In her photographs, she searches for the fine line between reality and abstraction, between the literal and the enigmatic.

Her recent project “Space Revisited” focused on a building site in downtown Toronto and its changes over time. She exhibited this series in a solo show at Gallery 44 Member’s Gallery in the fall of 2016.
