Sherry Young


by Sherry Young


My name is Sherry, and I am a French wildlife ecologist currently based in Vancouver for a PhD in snow leopard conservation. As part of my work and broader interest in discovering places and peoples, I had the incredible opportunity to travel to diverse places. As a scientist, I learned to document these adventures. As an artist, I honed my photography skills in order to capture and share the stories of these places and peoples in a whole new light. 

Since 2020, photography became a major part of my daily life, pushing my desire to capture places differently and the essence of peoples' stories, in the most authentic way. Nationally or internationally, I have been focusing on covering events, doing creative sessions with artists, following biologists in the field, activists in the streets or diving in the heart of the most special moments of your life. I also have experience doing product and franchise photography, as well as videography. As long as there is a story to tell, I am eager to help tell that story!

Most of the presented and current work is done on the unceded traditional territories of the Huu-ay-aht,  xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), q̓íc̓əy̓ (Katzie), kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem), Qayqayt, Kwantlen, Semiahmoo and Tsawwassen peoples.
