Born in Norway in 1992, Emile Rubino grew up in France before moving to Canada to pursue his studies in photography. He is currently completing the last year of his BFA in photography at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver (British Colombia). Working with both photographs that he makes as well as found or collected photographic materials, he constructs an ever-provisional series of studies where transience is allowed to become a subject matter in itself. Working within the space existing between the expression of an emotive experience of reality and the documentary nature of the photographic medium, he underlines the Work of the photographer as well as the role of photography’s materiality in shaping representation. For him, photographing is consists in getting lost to further look for and create a new path through his photographs.
His work has been included in various group exhibitions, including AHVA Gallery Axis of Light, Project Space Negative Pages and Presentation House Gallery’s Print Sale. In 2012, his ongoing work Lost, Missing, Found, Disappearing was presented in a two-person exhibition in the Concourse Gallery at Emily Carr University. He was awarded the Christopher Foundation Scholarship (2012) as well as the Emily Carr University Achievement Scholarship (2013).
