Welcome to my website

photo of Linda Briskin I am a fine art photographer in Toronto, intrigued by the juxtaposition of objects and reflections; the ambiguities in what we choose to see; and the permeability between the remembered and the imagined. I am fascinated by the fluidity between the natural and the constructed, and the authentic and the fabricated. I have a passion for nature and seek lines, shadows, texture and reflections, and images that last only a breath. Found objects inspire me and I delight in incorporating them into artistic projects.

Over the years, I have gradually moved from representation to the invented; and towards conceptual, narrative and political photography. Rather than ‘capturing’ images, I ‘imagine’ them, an approach that combines invention with representation. I often use photo-collage and photo manipulation to construct unique and painterly images layered with nuance and narrative which both embrace and displace the original images.


The Galleries page offers seven theme groupings: Portraits Re-invented; Honouring Nature; Reflections; Eco-Musings; Conversations; Imaginings; and Geometries. Click on each one to visit the photo series relevant to that theme.  

Ekphrasis refers to the cross-inspiration of art disciplines. The Ekphrasis page links to musicians, poets and dancers reflecting on my photographs. Click on each box to see the poem, hear the music or watch the dance.

The Writing page offers links to fiction, creative non-fiction and scholarly publications I have written.

The photograph Beckoning offers an invitation to contemplate nature and take comfort in the unexpected. The image is provocatively strange and perhaps a bit magical. In the tradition of curious juxtapositions.

Beckoning was chosen for the Winter Magic exhibition at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod (March 2022).
