Winnipegger Chandravani Sathiyamurthi helps kick off our series on local photographers using social media to share and engage with the visual arts community. Never before has there been such easy access to a mass audience for any level of artist. From newcomers to veterans, the unsung to the celebrated, this new dawn of visual arts puts us all on the same ground through social media. Check out more of Vani's work on Instagram @vanisathiya. — Mike Aporius, director of photography/multimedia

  • "One of my favourite quotes pertaining to photography is by the French photographer Robert Doisneau. 'The marvels of daily life are so exciting; no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street.'" - Chandravani Sathiyamurthi

  • "As for filters, I play with the shots until I achieve one that I just know is the right one for a particular shot. When I started using Instagram, its filters were the only ones I used. Now I have various photo apps, which I use to edit shots. I find as much pleasure in editing a shot as I do in shooting them. It’s about playing."

  • "For me, street photography is a reflection and meditation on what embodies the essence of a city."

  • "I don’t go out looking for situations or subjects, because one is always looking, observing. The ordinary and the unexpected are beautiful and I try to capture those poetic, uncanny moments with my iPhone."

  • "I guess I am a street photographer, and with street shots, they set themselves up for you. It’s a mixture of what is on the street, your perception and the tool you use to capture that moment."

  • "For me, street photography is a reflection and meditation on what embodies the essence of a city."
