David Ellingsen by CreativPaper


David Ellingsen is a Canadian photographer and environmental artist creating images of site-specific installations, landscapes and object studies that speak to the natural world and Man’s impact upon it.

Employing different photographic techniques for each of his Thematic series, Ellingsen acts as an archivist, surrealist and storyteller as he calls attention to the contemporary state of the environment both directly and through conceptual, subversive commentary about our consumerist society. Ellingsen’s images engage questions around the transience and temporality of existence, and his thematic subjects are marked by simplicity, empathy and a wounded sense of humanity’s fate.
