We all know that moment when the stage lights dim and the audience anticipation is palpable. What most don’t see is what happens behind the scenes. The tireless prep, unforgiving schedule, creative fatigue, endless rehearsals, nonstop jet lag, and finally: the triumph of when it all comes together. For the past 7 years Theo Skudra has been singularly documenting these moments for one of the world’s biggest artists, Drake.
Theo is the creative mind behind some of Drake’s most iconic images and director of his most recent videos (Money In the Grave & Nonstop), both showcasing his signature monochromatic style. Creativity runs in the family; both his father and grandfather were also photographers. He pulls influence from his love of cinema and had been experimenting with short films and writing long before he first met Drake.
Theo Skudra will be dropping by the Canon Creator Lab for a moderated discussion and audience Q&A as well as a first-ever gallery of his work, both giving us a backstage look at some unforgettable moments from his impressive career.
Note that this is a 19+ event and space is extremely limited so be sure to RSVP. Seating will be first come, first serve.
