In remnants of a photobooth, artist jenna dawn maclellan examines the intersection of photography, collaboration and global exchange.  During the 2011 Romerias de Mayo Arts Festival in Holguin, Cuba, maclellan set up a public photo-booth and invited the public to not only pose for a portrait (and more importantly, also receive a copy of their image), but also have the opportunity to express their views on globalization and its impact on their lives. Through this active dialogue, both photographer and subject are implicated in the images and reveal the dialectic nature of exchange.

jenna dawn maclellan was born in the prairies and raised in the community of Sioux Lookout. She relocated to France, Chicago, Morocco and West Africa before becoming a Montréal-based artist. Location, accessibility and personal encounters have largely influenced her socially-engaged practice, with recent performative works including nord/sud and how to move a mountain. She is currently working to complete her Masters of Fine Arts at Concordia University.
