I'm incredibly flattered that 2 of my photographs (exclusively available through Eye Buy Art) are now part of the photography collection at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in New Brunswick, Canada. 


Collecting Photography, Collecting The World 
April 22, 2012 - June 10, 2012

In her seminal essay On Photography, the literary theorist, feminist, activist, and author, Susan Sontag wrote: “To collect photographs is to collect the world.” 

The permanent collection of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery contains over 160 works that may be categorized as contemporary photography. Although not a large collection, it is representative of the diversity of regional, national, and international contemporary photographic practice, and includes work by Genevieve Cadieux, Jennifer Dickson, Diana Thorneycroft, Lois Connor, Robin Collyer, Edward Burtynsky, and many others. New Brunswick artists whose work is represented include Thaddeus Holownia, JamesWilson, Freeman Patterson, Greg Klassen, Kyle Cunjak, and Jaret Belliveau.

The Gallery is committed to building a significant collection of contemporary photographic works and is pleased to include in this exhibition a selection of photographs recently acquired through a gift from art collectors Glenn and Barbara McInnes. This generous donation features work by Eamon Mac Mahon, Eszter Burghardt, Lorraine Field, Becky Comber, Mark Kasumovic, Jinyoung Kim, Robyn McCallum, Nikki Middlemiss, Marshall Byrd Sterling, Darren Rigo, Amy Stevens, Lizzie Vickery, Angus Rowe MacPherson, Adam Kuehl, Pete Doherty, Sean Galbraith, and others.
