Interests

Kelly Wood is a photographer and practicing artist whose research focuses on subjects that relate to the environmental impact of waste accumulation, waste economies, and all forms of visible and invisible pollution. She has specifically written about Vancouver photography for international publications such as History of Photography, and Philosophy of Photography in the UK. She has been committed to the subject of waste in the environment as a visual problem for an extensive period of time. Her most well-known work, The Continuous Garbage Project (1998-2003) was an exhaustive photographic archive of all the garbage produced by the artist over a five-year period. The Continuous Garbage Project’s aim was to significantly evidence a marked reduction in waste production over time. Her photographs of local and other garbage forms now reside in major national and international museum collections.
