Pedro Isztin

Pedro's photographs reflect the richness of his diverse heritage. Born in 1964 to a Colombian mother and Hungarian father, Isztin lives in Ottawa, Canada. His recent work explores monolithic structures, (in the series Remains), inner life and outer world, (the installation Sami), the subtlety of a human gesture, (Nuance), and studies of land and humankind's influence on nature (in The River. The Glade, and Study of Structure and Form). 

Recently published images from Nuance are included in the Peter Hay Halpert Fine Art New York release of "Identities Now: Contemporary Portrait Photography." The River debuted at Ottawa'S City Hall Gallery, in the Fall of 2012 in conjunction with Ottawa's Photography Festival X and Nuit Blanche.

Pedro has received various awards to support the creation of his projects, including an Ontario Arts Council Award, 2006, and a Canada Council For the Arts: Photography Project Grant, 1999. Isztin's work has been exhibited internationally and featured in photography books, Full of Grace, 2006, New York, and magazines such as Contact Sheet, #148, 2008, Syracuse, NY, Private, #37, 2007, Italy, and Ottawa's Guerilla, #17, Vol 5, 2008. His work is represented by Wallack Galleries and is also in the permanent collection of the Canada Art Bank and The City of Ottawa's Fine Art collection.
