Hilary works as a freelance archaeological photographer throughout projects in Canada and the Middle East and has degrees in Near-Eastern Archaeology, Communication Design and International Museum Studies. The intention of her work as both an archaeologist and an artist is to present cultural heritage in its best light – to communicate ideas of objects and landscapes with their human interference into images of science and beauty.
She works in digital and large format film photography and will continue to co-direct a 3D modelling and documentation program of mud brick architecture during the winter of 2016-2017 in Luxor, Egypt.
In addition to researching and photographing for the Sunday Modernism project, she is currently researching a documentary project on northern Manitoba Cree women and their birchbark biting. She has been a guest speaker for the Strathcona Archaeology Society in 2014 and guest speaker among the 2015 Culture Days celebration in her quirky hometown of Flin Flon, MB.
