ABOUT:

 

Brian Damude, MFA

Brian Damude has pursued a career as a filmmaker, screenwriter, media educator and, more recently, a photographer with a focus on abstract landscapes. In 1995 he was appointed Chair of the School of Image Arts (Film-Photography-New Media) at Ryerson University, a position he held for 10 years. During his recent sabbatical in 2005/06 he traveled in Europe and South America to photograph and develop several new photo-based expositions. Brian is presently working full-time as a professor of film studies and media production at Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts, Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Brian’s first show as a photographer was presented at the Alliance Francaise de Toronto and is reputed to be the most successful exhibition ever held in that gallery and one of the first Canadian photographic exhibitions to consist entirely of archival and giclee prints. The exposition, “Meditations on the Blue Planet” was subsequently leased in its entirety for over a year by Lovas Stanley-Ray & Berndtson Inc. to hang in the executive offices of this international corporation’s headquarters in Toronto’s Royal Bank Building. The show then moved to the Bouchon Restaurant, also in downtown Toronto, where it was displayed for 6 months.

Brian’s work was the subject of a feature article in PhotoEd magazine and has appeared in several Ryerson University publications and on its website. His photographs have been acquired by individual collectors in Canada, the United States, Britain and France, as well as by small businesses, major corporations, several educational institutions and the Consulate General of France in Toronto. Brian was recently the featured artist at Ann Wylie-Toal Designs’ Spirit Space Gallery in Flesherton, Ontario, central to Beaver Valley where many of his photographs have been taken.

Brian has participated in a number of juried group expositions including “Photo Echo” at La Galerie, the “SNAP! Photo Competition and Exposition”, the “It’s About Time” exposition and auction, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, as well as group shows with Nora’s Picks.Com, Adina Photo Gallery and the Ryerson Gallery. Brian has been the featured artist several times at Ann Wylie-Toal Designs’ Spirit Space Gallery in Flesherton, Ontario, central to Beaver Valley where many of his photographs have been taken.
