About Chris Miner
The Applied Photography course at Sheridan College introduced me to view camera photography in September 1973. I was fascinated and hooked immediately. My use of large format cameras continues today.
The service I most often provide is art documentation photography. I represent, through photography, paintings, sculptures, and museum artifacts in our studio and on location. Accurate reproduction of colour, shape, media, and textures are essential to this work.
I contribute to the art world in other ways too. I regularly participate in group exhibits. Some of my work is in the permanent collection of the Agnes Etherington Art Gallery and I had a solo show at the Modern Fuel Gallery.
In 2015 I was the Artist-in-Residence at the Royal Military College of Canada. In 2016 and 2017 I was the first Artist-in-Residence at Providence Care Hospital. Residencies are a way to be immersed in a new culture, to contribute through teaching and portfolio review, and to interpret a culture.
While working for RMC, I was principle photographer on two books. Traditions of Excellence is a 140 page hardcover volume and RMC Treasures is a museum catalogue. Both are on sale at Novel Idea.
A travelling exhibit, Light is Everywhere, is one result of my work at Providence Care. Patients at Providence Care contributed half the exhibition-quality photos in this show.
