TORONTO - April 28, 2014 - PRLog -- Toronto, ON - Artist Alexis Marie Chute knows that the true power of visual art is its ability to transform the everyday into something evocative and thought-provoking, in a way that creates a connection with its viewers and its subjects. By all accounts, her recent photographic endeavour, The Quiet Rebuild, does just that. In an effort to continue to create those connections, Chute is seeking models in the Toronto to participate in a shoot this May.

What makes the images so powerful is that they're not professional models. They are real people who have faced real trauma who are working to recreate their identities and come to terms with loss at a variety of levels. The photographs are the culmination of Chute's year-long multi-media exploration of her own grief at the death of her newborn son in 2010.

The resulting photographic exhibition has struck a chord with artists and individuals alike, garnering her multiple honours across North America, and has prompted Chute to extend the life of the project indefinitely. As a result, she's looking to find participants in the Toronto area to participate in shoots while she is in town for the Scotia Bank Contact Photography Festival, May 3-6th.

"Many of the participants have found the process of engaging with their battles aesthetically, to be cathartic. The idea of the shoot is to provide almost a physical manifestation of their personal experiences," says Chute of the project, a photograph from which was recently awarded first place honours by the Method Art Gallery in Arizona.

Anyone interested in being involved with The Quiet Rebuild project is asked to get in touch with Alexis via email at
