Creative Minds

Mike Wedge was born and raised in England as an established “self taught” graphic designer. Having worked his whole life in the Advertising Agency world, Mike moved to Vancouver in 1992. A car accident in 2008 left him permanently disabled with vertigo and oscillopsia. Not ever being someone to go down without a fight, he decided to relocate to Yarmouth in 2017 and taught himself photography, tried “art,” and flat out reinvented himself.

On routine walks along Pembroke Beach, the garbage really troubled him, so he decided to do something about it and repurposed it into something creative. He never calls himself an artist. “That’s for real talent,” he says, but considers art very much as therapy. Every photo he takes he tries to get to know the person, and they in turn get to know him, which lead him to launch: Human Kind Portraits.

You will be captivated by Mike's passion about his crafts and the stories behind his pictures and reclamation art.
