The series aqua botanica preserves seaweed washed up on the western shores of Newfoundland and honours the ethereal offerings from the sea. These photographs are framed in black shadow boxes to enhance the experience of looking into another world.


Linda Briskin is a fine art photographer. She is intrigued by the juxtaposition of objects and reflections, the permeability between the remembered and the imagined, and the ambiguities in what we choose to see. She is fascinated by the fluidity between the natural and the constructed, and the authentic and the fabricated. She has a passion for nature and seeks light, texture, lines, shadows, and reflections, images that may last only a breath. Recently, her photographs have been published in Flare Journal (2021), Alluvian (2021), Canadian Camera (2020), Tiny Seed Literary Journal (2019), Burningword Literary Journal (2019) and High Shelf Press (2019). Briskin exhibits widely: recently at Artscape and Gallery 1313 in Toronto. In 2021, her photographs were chosen for the Herstory exhibit sponsored by Manhattan Arts International, the International Photography Exhibtion at Viewpoint Gallery in Nova Scotia, and the Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition at the Orillia Museum of Art and History.
