Richelle Forsey is an artist and photographer. She draws inspiration for her work through exploring built environments, urban remains and abandonments that she compulsively photographs (and collects artifacts from!). Forsey incorporates interdisciplinary approaches and multiple medias including: photography, ceramics, text, and found objects, to create works that inspire slow looking, spark imagination, and make sense of the contemporary world.
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).
Forsey is a founding member of the photography collective TLR Club (2004), and a member of Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography. She earned her BAH in Studio Art and Museum Studies from the University of Guelph.
When she is not traveling, Forsey lives and works in Guelph, Ontario.
