ABOUT ME

JESSICA LAFORET

I am a Toronto-based photographer that specializes in photographing people. My photography focuses on creating images that document true, authentic representations of my subjects. I believe photography should capture the essence of who a person is. My goal is that generations from now, people can have a sense of who they were from just looking at the image.

I grew up by the bluffs in Scarborough, and have made my home in Toronto for the last decade. Being a part of the community and connecting with others on a very real level is important to me. Photography is my preferred medium for being an active citizen. I also involve myself in causes to make our city a more livable place for all of us through my photography.
