Tamar Haytayan – Surrey Muse

Tamar Haytayan is a writer and photographer working from a personal and intuitive perspective to capture candid moments of the culture of everyday life. Tamar studied photography at the Bournemouth & Poole College of Art & Design in UK, and her body of work spans over the last 28 years. Exploration of memory, mortality and grief has been a major theme of her work. Two of her recent projects explore the idea of fate and memory after genocide and intergenerational trauma as well as the self in middle age. She has shown at the Armenian Centre for Contemporary Art (Yerevan, Armenia), PhotoHaus Gallery (Vancouver, Canada), Philadelphia Photo Arts Center (Philadelphia, USA), The Women’s Art Show (Vancouver, Canada), The Center for Fine Art Photography (Fort Collins, Colorado), Los Angeles Centre of Photography (Los Angeles), The Blue Sky Gallery (Portland, Oregon), and has collaborated with the performance artist and poet Dr. Celeste Snowber (SFU). Tamar has received an Honorable Mention for the Norval Morrisseau Award 2022. At this time, she resides in Vancouver.
