ARTIST

Dominique Jean-Marie – Kano Kano

Kano Kano is a photographer living in Montreal. Her photographic practice is in its
essence supported by emotion. Her purely artistic works bear witness to a
particular desire to explore human nature. She is interested in identity issues and
beauty criteria through the exploration of bodies forcing us to question the codes
of today’s society. By extension, the portraits she produces have for vocation,
without pretension and with sincerity, the exposure of the human soul. Before
embracing the career of photographer, Kano Kano studied economics and politics
at H.E.C and University of Montreal where she was moving towards a career as a
journalist. However, the desire to create has quietly established itself for the
expression of her creativity. Her artistic journey began at Collège Lasalle where
she studied fashion design. All diplomas in hand, she left Montreal to live and work
in Hong Kong. Few years later, she returned home, where photography stood out
as her medium. In 2017, Kano Kano decided to enroll in an international school of
photography and a year plus later, she graduated from Collège Marsan where she
developed a strong style for portraiture and nude. Since then, Kano Kano’s works
have been noticed internationally: her images are published in magazines,
galleries and she has won numerous international awards. You can see her works
exhibited in Barcelona.
