Ian Willms (b. 1985) is a founding member of Boreal Collective and NAMARA Represents. His visual practice resides within the gulf between photojournalism and contemporary photography. The inevitability of passing time and compromise are common threads that run throughout Willms’ photo essays, which he executes through focused empathy and visual lyricism. He works internationally and resides in Toronto, Canada.
