Neena Robertson is an artist, photographer, and educator who believes photography is a stepping stone from feeling to understanding. She currently lives and learns on the unceded and unsurrendered territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples, also known as Vancouver.
Through film photography, she works to merge the worlds of internal identity and external understanding. Centering her projects around curiosity allows Neena to unlearn and redefine the subjects she has been taught are ‘worth’ devoting attention to. There is an overarching theme of healing within her work and she is currently creating art based on her curiosity around power dynamics.
During the spring of 2021, Neena will receive a BFA with a major in photography from from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. She plans to continue showcasing her art in exhibitions and investigating the role photography plays in community healing.
