“I set out with the desire to create something new and different, something that was visually unique in a crowded landscape. I originally started with a bunch of awesome bald men and hurled water balloons at their heads, to capture the explosion of water at various intervals. The series has since evolved and has been explored in fashion, advertising and television. I chose to work with triads of colors to create images that are arresting and amusing at the same time. This collection is a testament to my core principle that if my images are my voice, I never want to be an echo.” Tim Tadder

Galerie Armatta began in Montreal in 2009 with a core mandate of igniting the careers of Canadian emerging photographers. This mandate continued through its reinvention as a live events and video projection gallery promoting emerging artists both on the gallery stage and projected on the gallery screen. Now in its fourth year and rebranded as Armatta Contemporary, the vision favours photography from around the world exhibited in fine art expositions as well as multi-media theatrical presentations. www.armatta.ca
