Brianna Roye is a film photographer specializing in portraiture. A graduate of Humber’s photography program, she’s accumulated six years of experience where she’s extended her lens to Adidas, has had her work featured in publications like MacLeans and FLARE and has shot festivals inclusive of ManifesTO and Afropunk. Inspired by her Jamaican roots, she uses her ongoing project, “Out of Many, One People” to chronicle portraits of queer, Afro-Caribbean people. Using intention as a guiding principle, she strives towards a level of organicness in her imagery. “I try to take photos of people as they are. I like to capture people's beauty and essence in as much as an honest way as I can,” she says. Hailing from Toronto’s west end, Roye is passionate about using her talent to tell stories and document underrepresented communities.
