Irish born, Vancouver based artist Ross Kelly’s practice is concerned with charting the vast and irregular borders encompassing photography in an attempt to more broadly define the medium itself. Experimenting mostly through photo-based projects or using photographs as a jumping off point, Kelly’s work arises out of a frustration with photography’s innate limitations. His work habitually pushes the medium to  attempt  what it is inherently unable to do and often employs metaphor in a reflective way to interrogate photography’s multiple functions, characteristics, quirks and in particular, its failings.
