Dana Claxton

Dana Claxton is the big and compelling book published in celebration of the artist’s 2020 Scotiabank Photography Award win. Working across the disciplines of film, video, installation, performance and photography, Claxton is renowned for using the seductive beauty of her imagery to draw viewers into her multi-layered explorations of a range of themes and issues, from the legacies of colonialism and the politics of representation to the enduring power of Indigenous culture and spirituality. From grainy black-and-white images shot on the streets of Paris to glossy, colour-drenched tableaux staged in studios in Vancouver, this survey of Claxton’s photographs reconfirms her art as a “site of freedom and self-determination.” With illuminating essays by Leila Timmins and Amy Kazymerchyk.
