Ruth Dick,53, is a very talented artist photographer based in Ottawa. She spent ten years studying and teaching philosophy, then became a federal crown. She suspended her law practice to be home with her kids, and during that time she picked up a camera. She goes out and take pictures nearly every day, and she is currently preparing an ongoing series of portraits for a solo show, for when the pandemic at last permits her to show again.
Her favourite thing to do is collaborate with artists from other mediums, such as clothing designers. She has worked with Paddye Mann, a member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, on a book for them, as well as designer Muriel Dombret, on a combined collection/ photo exhibition
Her work is held in private collections in Canada, the US, Europe and the UK. She is involved in the online photo collectives Foto: RE and The Covert Collective, which brings together curators and artists from across Canada.
