Fausta Facciponte is a photographer based in Mississauga, Ontario, who uses both traditional film-based and modern digital processes in her work. Exploring the human condition as a ‘material thing’, Fausta examines objects - how they decay, are preserved, forgotten and passed along from one owner to the next - the work raises questions about our own physical bodies and the nature of their existence within the boundaries of material goods. Her photography has been exhibited in Canada, the United States and Japan. She received her Honors Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto in 1990, and has been the recipient of various awards including: the Toronto Image Works Award, the Talens Bursary Award, and the D.L. Stevenson & Sons Artists Award. In 2008, she was the recipient of an Ontario Arts Council grant. Her work is in the permanent collections of the McMaster Museum of Art, Art Gallery of Peel, Sheridan College Collection, and in various private collections. Fausta Facciponte is represented by the Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto.
