Bell, a successful fashion photographer formerly based in New York, London and Milan who recently returned to his home in Medicine Hat, shows his impressive capabilities in fine art photography with these dramatic, emotionally resonant images. Everyday objects like plastic bags caught on fences, trees entangled with wire and weathered signage are photographed using traditional analogue cameras rather than digital, and meticulously rendered in richly toned black and white prints in the darkroom.

The Washington Post’s Director of Photography, MaryAnne Golon, writes of Bell’s work: “There is beauty, loss and poetry in every frame. Loss and remembrance are universal and Bell makes those emotions accessible and visible.”
Bell received a BFA in Photography from the Alberta College of Art & Design and has exhibited his work in England, the USA, Hungary and Japan. He recently won the LensCulture Exposure Jurist Award 2017, and the 2017 Bronze Award in the Royal Photographic Society International Photography Exhibition, London, UK.

The exhibition is part of the Alberta-wide Exposure Photography Festival and is accompanied by a publication with a text by Beth E. Wilson. For more information on Wes Bell and his work, visit
