In 2015, I spent a number of days photographing Hamilton’s industrial sector and surrounding neighbourhoods to further my research into Canada's industrial history. Long regarded as Canada’s "steel city," Hamilton is rapidly changing. This photograph, which came from my early visits, depicts rolled steel being transported through the sprawling Dofasco plant. Initially drawn to this image by the strong shadows and bold colours, I now think about the role that this steel—likely destined for the automotive industry—plays in complex global supply chains and manufacturing.
Eliot Wright is a Toronto-based photographer, educator and curator whose work frequently focuses on the complexities of landscape, investigating notions of place and transition. His images stem directly from exploration: a desire to be present in the world, to look closely and to think about how spaces are shaped. Wright’s photographs are regularly exhibited in diverse venues in Canada, including Urbanspace Gallery, Toronto; and the Nova Scotia Museum of Industry, Stellarton; and have been presented in notable publications such as Canadian Art and the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward. Born and raised in Newfoundland, Wright received a BFA, Major in Photography from NSCAD University and an MFA in Documentary Media at Toronto Metropolitan University. He currently teaches photography part time at Toronto Met and works as a freelance photographer.
