Ellingsen lives and makes his work in Canada’s Pacific Northwest, moving between Vancouver, Victoria and the farm where he was raised on the remote island of Cortes. He began his photography career as a freelance editorial and advertising photographer, before committing to his current full-time art practice.
Ellingsen exhibits in Canadian and international public and private galleries. His work is held in private and public collections. He was awarded First Place at the Prix de la Photographie Paris and First Place at the International Photography Awards in Los Angeles. Currently, Ellingsen is working on a long-term, time-sensitive series Weather Patterns, which documents climate trends and shifting meteorological phenomena.
Schwartz is one of the few contemporary artists making artwork using the lumen print process. These unique hybrid prints are made by a contact printing process that leaves traces and shadows on photosensitive surfaces that are digitized. Plant enzymes and atmospheric conditions also interact with the surface to produce unexpected results on photosensitive paper or sheet film, leaving X-ray-like marks of both their shapes and interiors. These impressions of organic forms hover on the cusp of abstract imagery and poetry.
