A conversation with Tamara Bahry: Photographer, Philanthropist, And Voice For Human Trafficking

As a photographer, Tamara Bahry is drawn to abstract viewpoints of life around her, presenting the ordinary—humankind, animals, water, bubbles and flowers—in extraordinary ways. Known for her ability to capture candid moments and love of expressionism through modern portraits, the Canadian artist first caught the shutterbug at an early age. Her father, also a photographer, encouraged her to explore the world around her through the lens of her first camera at the age of four.

After becoming a mother and balancing a successful career in finance, Bahry decided to go back to her creative roots by picking up the camera again full time. Since then, Bahry has won several industry awards and been featured in prestigious publications such as American Photo, House & Home, En Route, Photo Life, Cottage Life Magazine and Architectural Digest. It also allowed her to begin supporting initiatives she was most passionate about.

In addition to her role as photographer and mother, Bahry is Founding Director of HART (Human Anti-Trafficking Team) a charity devoted to helping victims of human sex trafficking and preventing future trafficking. She consistently donates her time and profits from her artwork to this and various other charities through The Bahry Foundation.

Tamara Bahry was interviewed by Tamara Moore in her Toronto studio.
