JANE HINTON (Estate), 1936-2020


What continues to fascinate me along with the geometry of bridges is the magic of bridging - the dynamics of shape produced by light and shade and the linking together of opposing sides creating unity and harmony.

JANE HINTON (1936-2020) was born in 1936 in Victoria, BC and raised in Toronto. She studied drawing and painting at St. Martin's College of Art in London, England and later at the Ontario College of Art & Design in Toronto.


Jane Hinton's knowledge of classical and contemporary art became the foundation for the experimentation with the camera and the development of her unique multi-framed images and most recently her concentration on photographing walk-bridges. Hinton has travelled with her camera throughout France, Spain, Italy, England, Scotland, Finland, Canada and the United States. She has exhibited internationally and her work is found in numerous collections around the world including A. F. Philips Collection, Eindhoven, Holland; Helmet Gernsheim Collection, Switzerland; Museum of Fine Art, Houston; Southeast Missouri Regional Museum; Bennett Jones, Toronto; Emprise Bank, Wichita, Kansas; Fidelity Investments, Boston and Toronto; RBC Dominion Securities, Toronto and TD Bank Financial, Toronto.
