The Alstom Series: The End 6
By Diana Shearwood


Diana Shearwood is a Montréal-based photographer who combines traditional photography and digital technology. Over the last eight years she has produced series of large format photographs which document the built environment. Her focus is on architectural ruins where people are rarely in evidence. She is particularly interested in the search for the “Accidental Monument” whether it be an abandoned industrial space, a forgotten motel in the desert, or an unnoticed urban overpass.

Solo exhibitions of her work have been presented at The Darling Foundry, Le Mois de la photo à Montréal, Galerie Éric Devlin, Quartier Éphémère, Galerie Luz, Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto, and in group shows as part of Le Printemps du Québec à Paris [Main d’oeuvre/Usine Éphémère], Québec à New York 2001 [
Silophone/The Kitchen], Obsolescence [Silos du Canada Maltage/La maison de la culture Marie-Uguay], and at Silver Eye Centre for Photography Members' Gallery [Pittsburgh] and Western Front [Vancouver]. Her images can be found in private and public collections including the Canada Council Art Bank, Fasken Martineau, and the University of Texas (Austin) School of Architecture.
