is a photographer based in Toronto who specializes in evocative images of the living world. Raised in Regent Park as the city began to tear his community down & apart he felt the urge to document everyday life in his changing neighbourhood. Moving on to his first DSLR only enhanced his ability to capture emotion & depth. He has worked with organizations such as UNICEF, MACLEANS Magazine and VICE. The artist recently came back from Somalia where he shot stills for #LoveArmyForSomalia an organization started by Jerome Jarre, Casey Neistat, Ben Stiller & Chaka. The most special thing to Yasin is #ShootForPeace. Yasin is also a registered early childhood educator. He found a way to mix both his love of children and photography by starting a photo program in the fall of 2015 in his community Regent Park. After one year the program was sponsored by CANON and has been widely featured in many news articles such as Upworthy, American Photo Mag and most recently CNN. Through social media platforms Instagram (24k) & 500px (190k) Yasin has accumulated over 200 thousand followers. The artist is currently working on a long term photography project that solely focuses on the Regent Park community.
