Ned Pratt was born and currently lives in Newfoundland. His innate understanding of the province’s beautiful but harsh landscape creates a foundation for his minimal, striking photographs. Pratt will often revisit a subject several times over the span of a few years before capturing an image that contains the right balance of composition, colour and light. His playful use of perspective and vantage point transforms photographs of familiar landmarks into elegant abstractions.
Ned Pratt was born in 1964. He holds a BFA in photography from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. His work is held in many prominent collections including the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax and The Rooms, Newfoundland. Pratt was awarded the 2017 Large Year Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts from the VANL (Visual Artists Newfoundland & Labrador) CARFAC. In 2018, Pratt’s first touring survey exhibition was held at The Rooms, Newfoundland and opened at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, New Brunswick in the fall of 2019.
