Download CV
Jorian Charlton (b. 1989, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) is a photographer working in portraiture. Her work focuses on Jamaican-Canadian culture through her personal experiences and that of her community, highlighting themes of Black family life, intimacy, community, and love. Charlton takes poetic approaches to her portraits, working with her models to create atmospheres, fashions, and poses that tell stories about Caribbean diasporas while addressing contemporary modes of Black representation.
Charlton earned a Bachelor of Photography at Sheridan College, and has had solo exhibitions at the Gallery TPW, Art Gallery of Ontario, Cooper Cole, Toronto; and the Art Gallery of Mississauga, Mississauga. She has participated in group exhibitions at Doris McCarthy Gallery at University of Toronto, Scarborough, and will be included in an upcoming exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago. Her work is included in the travelling exhibition The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion which was first curated for the 2021 edition of Arles Les Recontres de la Photographie. Charlton has created a number of public art projects in Toronto including Untitled (Angaer) on Shaw Street with Critical Distance Centre for Curators and Wedge Curatorial Projects (2021); Whak, Mo and Angaer at 330 Bay Street with Toronto’s Year of Public Art; and most recently Georgia at 460 King Street West with Contact Photography Festival. Jorian Charlton currently lives and works in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
