Follow along as I create photographic portraits for refugees in my hometown of Edmonton, Alberta.

Synopsis

Here in Canada, it's common to have boxes and albums full of images documenting the important moments and people in our lives. But for individuals fleeing their homes, their photographs are often lost or left behind. This Is Not a Passport Photo is a short documentary about creating portraits for refugees who have recently arrived in Canada, to give them images that capture a new chapter in their lives and to help them start filling new photo albums. Come meet some of the newest Canadians-in-the-making and learn what Canada, and photographs, mean to them.
