"Roman Angel",  Rome, Italy

 

Biography/ C.V.

 

Canadian photographer Pamela Williams has exhibited across North America and in Italy. "In the Midst of Angels" is Williams' latest collection of cemetery photographs. "Last Kiss", her critically acclaimed second book of sensuous Italian figures, was nominated for the prestigious Roloff Beny Award in 2000. Her first book of romantic Parisian statues, "Death Divine" caught the eye of the media. Opening to rave reviews in 1995, her popular exhibits of European cemetery sculpture toured the continent for over a decade.

 

Williams' photographs appear on the covers of Timothy Findley's book, "Dust to Dust", Margaret Laurence's "Stone Angel", and Carole Corbeil's "In the Wings". Portfolios of her work have appeared in the "New Age Journal" and "Profiles Magazine". Her photographs were the subject of a half hour television special that aired on "Bravo" and "Vision Television".

 

Williams is known for the lively lectures she gives on her work. She has appeared on CBC' Radio's "Richardson's Roundup", "Fashion Television", and "Canada AM", among others. Her work is collected throughout North America.

 

Pamela Williams lives in Toronto and visits cemeteries around the world.
