Vancouver’s Stan Douglas has won the third-annual Scotiabank Photography Award. Organizers announced Douglas had claimed the $50,000 prize during a ceremony in Toronto today (May 16).
"Stan Douglas has helped define and enrich the Canadian art and photography landscape with his outstanding artwork,” Edward Burtynksy, chair of the award jury, said in a release.
“He has pushed the limits of contemporary photography and will continue to have an incredible impact on the world of photography both here in Canada and abroad.”
Douglas—whose photomural Abbott & Cordova, 7 August 1971 is on display in the downtown Vancouver Woodward’s building—works in photography, film, and video.
