Stephen Waddell - Hunt and Gather

Stephen Waddell's photographic approach adheres to the hunting and gathering model of direct photography, yet his intention is not documentary or journalistic but rather rooted in the tradition of realism. He received his MFA from the University of British Columbia in 1994, and has exhibited in galleries and institutions including Monte Clark Gallery, the Vancouver Art Gallery, Espai d’art contemporani de Castelló in Castello, Spain, Kunstforum Baloise in Basel, Switzerland, the Contemporary Art Gallery in Vancouver, and C/O in Berlin. Stephen Waddell’s photographic work was honoured by the Liliane Bettencourt Prix de la Photographie 2010. Waddell’s works are included in the permanent collections of the Armand Hammer Collection in Los Angeles, the Vancouver Art Gallery, the National Gallery of Canada, and numerous others. Hunt and Gather was published by Steidl Publishing in 2011. The artist lives and works in Vancouver, B.C. Canada.
