About the Artist
Cam Wood is a Canadian fine art photographer and digital artist. His artwork ranges from story-driven cinematic portraiture to complex and emotional digital composites.
Since he first picked up a camera he's been completely obsessed with creating elaborate scenes in his imagery. Growing up, he had access to an extensive library of films. The storytelling aspects of of these films greatly influenced how he approaches his artwork today. Although the intended story of a photograph is not always explicitly outlined for the viewer, there's always a story to be told or an emotion to be invoked.
His first Limited Edition series, From Darkness, explores the possibilities of black and white photography, capturing cinematic portraits within dark and imaginative scenes. The artworks in this collection are formed from studio captured digital images that are manipulated and layered to emphasize haunting aspects of the original exposures.
Cam currently works and lives in Southern Alberta, Canada.
