Deanna Pizzitelli (b. 1987) is a Canadian photo-based artist and educator. She completed her BFA in Photography at Ryerson University, and her MFA at the University of Arizona. Interested in the emotional landscape, Pizzitelli uses analogue processes to explore themes of longing, loss, uncertainty and desire. Her practice is motivated by the act of travel, the visual residue of her many intersections with landscape, wildlife, and culture.
Pizzitelli’s work was recently exhibited at Paris Photo, 2017 and AIPAD: The Photography Show, New York, 2018. She is a recipient of the inaugural Scotiabank New Generation Photography Award. This culminated in an exhibition at the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, and at the OCADu Onsite Gallery in Toronto, a Featured Exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. Pizzitelli has attended residencies in Canada, Iceland, and Portugal. She is represented by Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto.
