Richelle Forsey is an interdisciplinary process-based creator and writer. Forsey’s practice is rooted in storytelling, the discourse of images, aleatory outputs, and ultimately making works for slow looking – a practice akin to Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening.

Her work has been shown in Canada, the U.S. and abroad, as well as collaboratively in the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival, and Scotiabank Nuit Blanche (Toronto).

Richelle is a member of the photography collective TLR Club (2004) and Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography, and the graphic artist for the indie experimental music label Aural Tethers. She resides in Guelph, Ontario, and is the Photography Technician at the University of Guelph.
