Bio

Anthony Gebrehiwot is a passionate photographer, community leader and social entrepreneur whose creative lens re-visions photography as an ongoing dialogue of social change between subject and society.

A self-taught photographer, Gebrehiwot founded XvXy-photo focusing on studio portraiture, and has to date, worked with some of Canada’s most prolific instigators including Che Kothari, d’bi.young anitafrika, Kardinal Offishal, Donovan Bailey and Emmanuel Jal. Permanently humbled by the magnificence, brilliance and sheer beauty of the human form, Gebrehiwot often provocatively deifies his subjects; paying homage to their divine human essence through his imagery.
