Biography - Joanne Chilton

The work in Joanne Chilton's portfolio has a completely different style than most others we have reviewed at Profotos. Her fine art style of photography is very simple, yet it carries a very deep and often spiritual meaning beneath the surface.

Joanne has been working in the art field for most of her life, and the images within her portfolio reflect this life-long commitment to the field. Several of Joanne's images convey a definite sense of mood and feeling through her emotional use of color, texture, and composition. The image on this page is a great example of Joanne's use of simple objects, to create intense emotions. Not only is this image a perfect example of completmentary contrast, but it is also a wonderful example of the rule of thirds and juxtaposition as well. Several of Joanne's images convey these ideals, as well as many others, which work together to create striking photographs.

Our staff truly enjoyed reviewing the images in Joanne's portfolio. We believe that she is a very gifted artist with some amazing work, and we believe you will feel the same way too!,Joanne Chilton's involvement in Photography and other artistic expressions began during her younger years, and later started exploring different avenues of creativity from early to mid 90's. Her artistic endeavors range from abstract painting, poetry to Photography.

Her love for travel has woven a wider understanding of culture, history and spiritual connection, which she creatively expresses often in her photography. Living abroad has taken her to such places as Greece, Holland, Switzerland, Spain, France and other parts of Europe and North America. Since her return to the Maritimes she still continues to travel abroad, including Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Wales and England.

More recently Joanne has discovered the fullness of weaving words with images and has exhibited twice using images with commentary and poetry. Her unique style allows her to present solo exhibits with strong themes that enhances and adds depth to her work. She is interested in combining her photography and poetry into book format and eventually publishing her own book in the future.

Joanne's style of Photography that she most connects and works with is Miksang Contemplative Photography. Miksang means "Good Eye" in Tibetan. She plans to further her study in the Contemplative Arts and visual workshops by taking courses that deepen and enhance her work. Her work is in various places throughout Europe and North America. Her online portfolio and gallery of work is updated regularly and has been viewed internationally by many. She has displayed and exhibited work in various Galleries, shops and venues and is currently working on presenting proposals to exhibit her work internationally and other parts of Canada and US.

Some of Joanne's sources of inspiration are women who speak their truths and believe in themselves. Other inspirations are music and poetry by the great sufi poet Rumi. Other sources are great masters of photography such as Weston, White and Dorothea Lange.
