Kasha, an avid 17-year-old photographer and filmmaker, planned to travel the world, finding inspiring stories from people she met along the way. Travels Into the Heart is an exhibition of 32 photographs taken on that journey.

Travels Into the Heart will have its local launch, alongside Kasha’s first book, on Thursday, Dec. 17 at HangLoose Media in Leslieville.

The show has travelled to New York and Portland, but will appear in her hometown for the first time. The photos feature people and locations from six months of travel in East Africa and Southeast Asia. The images were taken during the filming for her upcoming documentary The Sunrise Storyteller.

Travels Into the Heart runs from 7 to 11 p.m. at HangLoose Media, 28 Logan Ave. An RSVP is required.
