Artist bio

 Isabella Dagnino recently received her Bachelor in Fine Arts with an Extended Minor in Art History and Visual Arts at the University of the Fraser Valley and is a Master in Fine Art candidate at Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Her art practice is rooted primarily in analog medium and large format photography. As someone with Latinx, Indigenous, and Settler ancestry, much of her work examines the experiences shaped by her cultural background and her relationship to place and community.
