Julie Grahame

Pier21 Artist-in-Residence

An incredible opportunity for a Canadian photographer to be awarded a residency with the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier21. With four superb co-jurists, we looked at dozens of proposals and after much discussion, we awarded the residency to Tamara Abdul Hadi, who will make portraits of first generation Canadians and the families, inspired by a series by Yousuf Karsh for Macleans Magazine in 1953.
