Brant Slomovic (b.1970, Montreal) began his formal study of photography at age fourteen, and upon graduating from high school was awarded the Departmental Prize in Art. He then quit! After a lengthy hiatus during which he completed his medical training, specializing in emergency medicine, he began making photographs again. Brant travelled extensively in the course of re-learning his craft. Sometimes, however, one finds clarity closest to home. At a Magnum Photos workshop during the Contact Festival in Toronto he rediscovered his first passion: documentary photography.
Brant lives and works between Toronto and Montreal. He had his first solo exhibit of Glengarry last year at the Toronto Image Works Gallery. Most recently, he was featured as a Contender in the 2012 Hey, Hot Shot! International Photography Competition and in the Collection at Flak Photo.
His current personal projects include Shinny, which details the ubiquity of shinny Hockey in Canadian culture, and Puja, which explores rituals of spiritual homage that are pervasive and inextricable from daily life in India.
Brant is available for commissioned editorial work (but will seriously consider most cool projects).
