Mark Ruwedel (b. 1954, American, Canadian citizen) has become one of Canada’s most respected landscape photographers during a career spanning three decades. Working primarily in the western territories of the United States and Canada, Ruwedel documents traces and imprints of human activity on the earth. He describes the process as “an inquiry into the histories, cultural and natural, of places that reveal the land as both a field of human endeavour and an agent of historical processes.” 

This exhibition celebrates Ruwedel’s selection as winner of the 2014 Scotiabank Photography Award. It includes works from the artist’s many long-term projects, including Terres des Hommes, The Italian Navigator, Westward the Course of Empire, Shelter and Desert Houses. The Ryerson Image Centre is proud to continue its multi-year partnership with Scotiabank to honour a leading Canadian artist working with photographic media.

A primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival
