Shira Gold is a fine art photographer from Vancouver, Canada. Shira seeks to isolate images of stillness and beauty from complicated and painful moments. “My art is alert to the discomfort we all face in our daily lives,” she explains, “but I want to turn pain and angst on its side to discover the beauty that accompanies our struggles.” Drawing on her relationships as a daughter and a mother, Shira’s work explores experiences of grief, embodiment, discovery, and wonder.
Shira’s work has been exhibited in Vancouver, Seattle, Rome, Athens, Los Angeles, Greenville as well as Barcelona and Calgary this fall. She has received several recognitions most recently was a Lensculture Art Awards Finalist, was awarded Honourable Mention at the 13th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards, was a 2019 Nominee in Nature FAPA - Fine Art Photography Award and was a semi-finalist in the 2018 Sapphire Artisan Series.
