Ethan Murphy is a visual artist from St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography Studies from the School of Image Arts at Toronto Metropolitan University and is one of the founders of DarkNL Community Darkroom. His work links identity and place by reflecting on the psychological impact of Newfoundland's rural environment. Murphy’s work is conceived from a fluctuating perspective acquired from leaving and returning to remote parts of Newfoundland, enabling him to renegotiate his connection to its isolated areas. He reconciles his relationship with identity, loss, memory, and family while examining the Newfoundland landscape post cod moratorium, pointing to a series of economic blows dealt to the province over the past half century. Murphy has exhibited at the National Gallery of Canada, internationally and was awarded the New Generation Photography award in 2019.
