Ruth Gillson

Ruth has taken stills for National Film Board documentaries, photographed performers for Toronto’s Next Stage Theatre’s Festival productions, the Montreal and Toronto burlesque scene, the re-union of the original cast of Mama Mia, Fashion Art Toronto (FAT), and has exhibited her work in a variety of Toronto outdoor and juried gallery venues.

Ruth's photographs have appeared in NFB promotional material, Maclean's and Time magazines. Her images have been published in the book ‘Burlesque, The True Art of Seduction.’ Most recently, Ruth’s photograph of Scarlett James was used in the Montreal Gazette Entertainment section as a full page for an article featuring the Montreal Burlesque Festival. Her photographs have also appeared in Xtra, Burlesque Beat, blogs, and have been used for the promotion of Montreal and Toronto burlesque events as well as for performers' press kits, print and web promotions. Ruth’s work has been accepted to SNAP! 2015 supporting the AIDS Committee of Toronto.
