Henry CHAN has been documenting performance art in Toronto since 2006. He has photographed five of the ten 7a*11d festivals, the activities of FADO Performance Art Centre for the last 7 years, as well as events, exhibitions and performances at various venues including the Images Festival and The Power Plant. When he is not using a camera, Henry is crunching numbers and pushing paper as an accountant.
