This series by Ibrahim Abusitta captures a Spring Equinox celebration on the Toronto Islands, where members of the community living on the island bring their dried Christmas trees to the beach, and take turns throwing their trees into the fire. It is further representative of the many instances of human gatherings around fires. Abusitta is an interdisciplinary visual artist based in Toronto. Ibrahim obtained a BFA in Photography at OCAD University. In 2013, he was the recipient of the Project 31 Award for his graduating thesis work Al-Kanady; this work also won Best in Exhibition Award (Student) and Best in Photography Award (1st Honourable Mention) at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition in the same year. Ibrahim’s work has been exhibited in Canada and Italy.
