Emily Carr University of Art + Design
Tori Schepel is a multi media artist born and raised in Vancouver, BC currently completing her BFA in Photography at Emily Carr University of Art + Design after having studied at Pratt MWP. Her practice is embedded in self portraiture, redefining tropes in female imagery and examining problematic genres of cinema through analog photography. Her praxis is rooted in identifying the autonomy of documenting the female body and self by performing visual cues in the stylings of melodrama, horror, and film noir. Recently, she has been short listed for the Philip B. Lind Prize 2017 and will be exhibiting at Presentation House Gallery during Capture Photography Festival.
