Haley Pukanski

Whyte Light Photography Exhibit artist Haley Pukanski presents us with a series of photographs blended with illustrations from a sponsored collaboration with LCQ. The series, Cropped, gives us a taste into a persons struggles without showing the whole picture, literally. Thus, creating a more personal level with the subject, while reminding us of the ambiguity that mental health stigmas have behind them.

LCQ is a clothing and art company/collective created by Cole Panchyshyn in 2012. LCQ artwork is illustration heavy, and full of life, focusing on the highs and lows of living in the city as a fresh adult. In Cropped, Cole uses thick line work, and spooky, human-like forms. This is the true LCQ that lives on through years of Strathcona street art and parties curated by LCQ. You can see more at http://www.lcqclothingandcollective.com/
