The Artwork and Evolution of Christine Fitzgerald's Photography

Christine Fitzgerald is an award-winning fine art photographer from Ottawa. Much of her artwork deals with the natural environment with underlying themes of identity, loss and the transience of life. Her images are produced intuitively using digital and vintage large format camera and lenses, often integrating historical and modern photographic tools and processes. She recently completed an artist residency at the Ottawa School of Art, was a visiting artist in print media at the School of Arts, Media, Performance and Design at York University and completed the diploma program at the School of the Photographic Arts: Ottawa. Her complete bio and samples of her work can be found on her website atwww.christinefitzgeraldphotography.com.
