Currently based in Vancouver, Canadian photographer Steve Dynie is critically recognized for his evocative series of long-exposure photographs that examine the way natural beauty can serve as a catalyst for meditative self-awareness. In his series Monoliths, weathered land formations and seastacks appear luminous and quietly poetic. And in Unforgiving Surf—shot in black and white around Oahu’s famed North Shore—Dynie values both the spiritual and sculptural aspects of big wave surfing. His work is intimate, spare, and emotionally engaging.
Over the last few years, Steve Dynie has exhibited his work in solo exhibitions and been repeatedly honoured at the prestigious International Photography Awards (IPA), the PX3 Awards, and the Black and White Spider Awards for his thoughtfully composed scenes. Most recently, his series was awarded second place at the IPA.
Steve Dynie lives with his wife and two young daughters in East Vancouver and travels frequently on photography projects.
