Photography - All things Montreal


Elaine graduated from Sir George Williams (Concordia) University with a BSc and has always worked in the health sciences field. In 2015, she retired from the Department of Pathology at the Jewish General Hospital after 25 years of service.

After retiring, she joined the Women’s Art Society of Montreal (WASM) and is currently the WASM Blog Manager. Elaine is also a member of the Montreal Camera Club, three years and counting!

Her interest in arts and culture began early in life with music and dance. She began snapping photographs at an early age with the help of her dad and a variety of film cameras. Since going digital, Elaine’s photography has transformed – she likes to “play” with her photos by manipulating them in Photoshop, by printing them on unusual substrates such as foil, translucent papers, and gold-leaf, or by making photo-collages using transparencies and cut-outs. She has also created traditional photo books via Blurb and Photo-In-Press, as well as hand-made books in other unusual 3D forms using her very own photographs. The most recent book Elaine helped to create is the “Awesome WASM Cookbook, A Treasury of Tried-and-True Recipes from WASM Members”.

Thanks to my dear friends, Jackie, Nicole, and Philip, who took the photographs of me seen in the “portrait” above. And huge thanks to Eileen, Sharron, Jackie, and Deanne who inspired me to create the slide shows in my "Friends and Family" gallery. The exercise for me was to match my photographs to their works of art. Enjoy!
