Melina Mehr is a multi-disciplinary creator currently based in Toronto. She is a museum professional, film photographer, web developer, and writer, whose work focuses on cultural lineage, transgenerational memory, and storytelling. In both her professional and personal pursuits, she works towards creating environments a little more open and kind, representing marginalized communities with resilience and nobility. Her side hustles include: running a DIY zine press, co-hosting an all ladies basketball drop-in called The Basquettes, and (very) slowly acquiring her private pilot license. Portrait by Rachel Kirstein.
