Blaine Campbell is an Alberta-based photographer and artist, dividing time between Edmonton and Vancouver.
Commercial photographic services are primarily centred in architecture and fine art documentation, working with architectural and construction firms, museums, and galleries. Clients have included the Art Gallery of Alberta, the Rennie Collection, Translink, the City of Vancouver, Artspeak, Simon Fraser University, the Museum of Anthropology, amongst others.
Artworks are based in photography, installation, and video. Blaine's thematic interests have included the inherent properties of the photograph and its relation to the viewer, landscape use and modification, processes of mediation and artifice in relation to transcendent experience, and parallels between Jacques Derrida’s “textuality” and quantum theory. In 2007, Blaine received the national award in the BMO 1st Art! Invitational juried competition and the Emerging Artist Award from the Contemporary Arts Society. He has exhibited work at various galleries in Canada and Europe and is represented by Republic Gallery in Vancouver.
A 2007 graduate of Emily Carr University with a BFA in photography, Blaine previously completed B.Math and M.Sc. degrees in mathematics at the University of Waterloo and University of Calgary, respectively.
