Isla Van Damme: Embracing Purple Passion in the Heart of Chinatown

Isla Van Damme, also known as @islavandamme, brought their vibrant energy to Studio 549 in Chinatown, "Victoria" located on Lekwungen territory, and the result was pure magic. As a queer and trans photographer, I love collaborating with fellow creatives like Isla, who exude passion and authenticity in every frame.

During our shoot, Isla's love for purple inspired us to experiment with unconventional color palettes, adding a playful twist to the photos. From their captivating bunny-themed ensemble to the ethereal crystal crown, each shot captured Isla's dynamic essence as a multi-talented genderfluid femme being.

Isla's versatility as a performer shone through in every pose, whether they were striking acrobatic poses or exuding regal elegance in a hammock. Their natural confidence and charisma made every moment a joy to capture.

As a queer and trans photographer, I'm committed to creating inclusive and empowering spaces for all individuals to express themselves authentically. Working with artists like Isla reminds me of the beauty and diversity within our community, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to celebrate and uplift each other through art.
