Artist Statement:

Fascinated with the magic of the captured image since receiving her first Polaroid camera for her 13th birthday, Liis Toliao studied Film and Television Production at York University and is a self-taught photographer. Liis has worked in various aspects of the film industry in Toronto, including film/video editor, script supervisor and art director and she has never missed a year of attending the Toronto International Film Festival since she was old enough to buy a ticket. Inspired by the seemingly invisible, Liis is currently focussing her attention on capturing the still and sometimes banal aspects of street life. Although she has embraced digital photography, she is still a lover of shooting 35mm film and can regularly be found about town with an old Nikon camera.
