Original art crafted with passion.

Jamie Ruddy

Artist Bio

Sudbury, Ontario
My interest in photography began in high school. I studied cinematography at Humber College in Toronto. My skills as a photographic artist continue to evolve through workshops and self-learning. I have exhibited my photography at Artists on Elgin/The Northern Artists Gallery, The Burlington Art Centre, The Art Gallery of Sudbury, and many other venues.
Personal Statement I am a self-declared misanthrope with humanitarian tendencies. I try to emphasize the positive but am occasionally tempted by the dark forces. I am neither a leader nor a follower. Sometimes I travel the well-known path while other times I veer off into unfamiliar territory. I use the medium of photography for artistic, creative expression. My creative process emanates from historical and current events, old and modern technologies, natural occurrences, man-made events… Urban and rural landscapes are preferred subject matter. My approach to capturing photographic images varies. Sometimes considerable contemplative thought and planning is given prior to the onset of a photographic project. At other times, photographs are taken as an immediate reaction to an emerging opportunity. I maintain a similar approach to the post-production of my photographic images, in that sometimes an image may be processed to a finished print quickly, or it may be left dormant for a time, revisited and perused by me many times before it is made into a print. A finished photographic image will often appear as abstract or surreal, defying the conventional appearance of a photograph.
