Jerod Killick is Norwegian - Canadian writer and photographer from Vancouver, British Columbia. His latest novel, "Without A Testimony," set in Northern Idaho in the 1990s, tells the tragic story of Jordan, a Mormon coming of age in a society eager to accept his sexuality, held back by a faith desperately trying to save his soul.
As a fine art photographer, Jerod works in both digital and analogue formats, but prefers all aspects of the film and Polaroid picture making process. He draws inspiration from many sources, including visits with family back home in Norway, his childhood years spent in Southeast Alaska, and current work as a senior leader in mental health and addictions in Vancouver BC. Jerod also spent several years in Idaho, a place that continues to inform much of his work as a photographer.
Jerod's creative works have been characterized as "moody," "authentic," and "grounding." He is adept at getting to know his subject matter on a deeply personal basis, seen both in the characters he writes about, and the people in his photos.
