    2018 New Generation Photography Award Recipient Bios:

    Elisa Julia Gilmour is an emerging Canadian artist producing still and moving images. Her work engages with the notion of ephemerality through gestural storytelling. Her most recent project, Éperdument (Madly) (2016), which included a three-channel video installation and a publication of short stories, investigates how a Corsican mythological figure has enlivened a contemporary sense of identity. She has exhibited at the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, the Ryerson Image Centre and the Art Gallery of Mississauga.

    Meryl McMaster is a Canadian-based artist and photography graduate from the Ontario College of Art and Design. She was born and raised in Ottawa and is of Plains Cree/European decent. Her work explores questions of identity, representation, perception, myth, memory and the environment. Her distinct approach to photographic self-portraiture has been influenced by her experiences working in and exploring remote Canadian landscapes, as well as by contemplations over the complexities of her family heritage. Her solo exhibition Confluence (Curated by Heather Anderson and originating at Carleton University Art Gallery) is travelling to four more venues across Canada.

    Deanna Pizzitelli is a Canadian photo-based artist and educator. She completed her BFA in Photography at Ryerson University, and her MFA at the University of Arizona. With an emphasis on the emotional landscape, Pizzitelli uses analogue processes to explore themes of fantasy, desire, longing and loss. Her practice is motivated by the act of travel, the visual residue of her many intersections with landscape, wildlife and culture. Pizzitelli's work was recently exhibited at AIPAD: The Photography Show, New York, and Paris Photo, 2017. She has attended residencies in Canada, Iceland and Portugal. She is represented by Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto.
