CSULB Photography Professor Mark Ruwedel won the 2014 Scotiabank Photography Award, celebrating excellence in Canadian contemporary photography. The prestigious award includes a $50,000 cash prize, a solo Primary Exhibition at the 2015 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival and a book of the winner’s work to be published and distributed globally by world-renowned art publisher Steidl. Edward Burtynsky, Chair of the Scotiabank Photography Award jury and co-founder of the Award said of Ruwedel, “He is a master of seeing and printing and has inspired countless landscape photographers. Mark’s eye for detail and his subtle perceptions about the intersection of – and commentary upon – the historic versus contemporary in landscape photography remains matchless.” For more information, please click here.
