Artist’s Statement

Photographed in natural light, the images in this exhibit are the result of experimenting with the effects of light filtered through juxtaposed pieces of coloured glass. The resulting abstracts, always a wonderful surprise, are replete with a wide range of colours and their possible shades. –  John Berridge

​The poems of Imagined Landscapes were written specifically for this exhibit. While the photos and poems have their own integrity, rather than illustrating each other, they “speak” in a conversation. The inspiration comes from Buddhist “tonglen” meditation, or sending compassion in each of the four directions. –  Anne Simpson

As Eric describes the exhibit:

Eric Boutilier-Brown’s newest exhibition presents photographs of the Nude set within the haunting ruins and rich landscapes of Ireland. The show’s images are all centered upon Ingrid, who’s worked with Boutilier-Brown since 1998, and who accompanied him to Ireland in 2016 to create a body of work marking his 30th year of photography.

The exhibition features images drawn from that project; 12 selected by the photographer, and 12 selected by the model, Ingrid.

The Ethics of Photographic Practice

Who gets to speak for or about others with photographs?

The ethical issues (awareness, intent, consent etc.)  provoked by this question have implications for anyone who does photographic work with people – academic, domestic,  street,  documentary, commercial, journalistic, portraiture, travel and so on. Phillip Joy and David Neilsen will initiate our discussion of these issues through brief overviews of the ethical considerations of their photographic work with people in academic and artistic contexts.

This promises to be a lively evening. Hope you’ll join us.

Phillip Joy is a photographic artist and PhD student in Human Nutrition at Dalhousie University.

David Neilsen is a musical sound artist and Research Master of Arts graduate of Mount Saint Vincent University.
