Fiona Howarth has been an avid photographer for many years and has been internationally recognized for her compelling photographs. She has had formal training in photography completing a Bachelor of Arts from the University of the Fraser Valley. Her work has been exhibited in group and solo exhibits across Canada and the United States and been widely published.
Fiona’s photographic aesthetic revolves around time, memory, and loss. These constructs are the undercurrents of all of her images and tie her projects together. Her work seeks to address social and environmental issues on a local as well as international level and through her work affect change. Howarth attempts to cause people to pause and examine their beliefs and assumptions and uses photography to accomplish this by showing beauty in the overlooked ordinary.
Howarth uses film exclusively for all of her work and specializes in medium and large format photography. Black and white photos are printed by hand in the darkroom and are processed to archival museum standards using non-acid fixers and selenium toner for maximum print life. Colour photos are processed at a professional colour lab and are archival. Silver gelatin and C-prints are editioned in closed editions of 25, platinum palladium prints are an edition of 5, and each Polaroid Transfer is unique and so each image is an edition of one.
