Merry Christmas to All

© Eliot Wright, 2013Another year has come and gone and I find myself once again celebrating Christmas with family and friends. Twenty-thirteen turned out to be a big year for photography for me: I was the Assistant Director at ViewPoint Gallery, became the secretary for PHOTOPOLIS: The Halifax Festival of Photography, and receiving a substantial Arts Nova Scotia grant for the NS Industrial Project (which I've been writing about on this blog). It was a good year for commercial photography as well, having completed projects for NSCAD University and St. Mary's University, documented artwork for a host of NS visual artists and even worked with Chris Nicholls on a location fashion shoot during the summer. As a result, I've shot more images in the past twelve months than I have in 2010, 2011 and 2012 combined!

On a more personal note, I recently got engaged to my partner and collaborator Liz van Allen, who has had a big year launching her eva Jewellery brand, too! To close out the year, I wrote a little Christmas story for Arts East—an Atlantic-based e-magazine related to all things art. Head over to their website to read, "The Family Tree." Merry Christmas to all and best wishes for the new year!

To celebrate, here are some of my favourite images from the past year...
