About artist/note:

Stephen Waddell, the 2019 winner of the prestigious Scotiabank Photography award, is
known for his evocative investigations of the urban world. His photographs feature a distinctive
sense of space and scale, not to mention an attentiveness to framing and composition that
recalls devices more commonly found in historical painting. Photographs like the Coal Handler
encapsulate the dynamism and alienation that characterize modern city life.
His works are included in the permanent collections of the Armand Hammer Collection in Los Angeles, the Vancouver Art Gallery and the National Gallery of Canada.
