David Ellingsen is a Canadian photo-based artist working through long-term projects focusing on forests, biodiversity and climate. His work draws upon a colonial family history, one often embedded within British Columbia’s troubled forest industry, and reflect on the impacts of resource extraction and consumption on past, present, and future eco-systems. Recent exhibitions include China’s Lishui Museum of Art, the San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art, Lithuania’s Kaunas Photo Festival and Canada's Campbell River Museum.
