For Canadian photographer Dzesika Devic, photography means preserving memories.
“Photography is my ʻjournalʼ. It’s an extension of my thoughts and feelings. It helps me remember the times I spend with my friends and family. More than ever, photography has been a way to connect with others.

This picture from 2019 is about my parents. We always have dinner and sit together well into the evening. At the end of every visit, my parents walk me to the door to say goodbye. They wait till I go outside and get into the car so they can wave goodbye as I drive away. I like this image, because, even though you can’t see what they look like, the way they’re standing, and their posture, tells me exactly who they are.

It was taken with a Leica M6 and slide film. I can’t remember exactly which one.”

Her work covers a wide range of subjects and media, but storytelling runs like a thread through it all. More
