Awards

Without a doubt the awards and recognition I’ve received from fellow artists and show visitors are the ones I treasure most.

My photography and my art hold a special place in my heart, which is why I feel so honoured to have received awards for both. For example, I received this accolade a long time ago, but it still thrills me – it’s from Freeman Patterson, one of Canada’s greatest-ever photographers. I’ve long admired his work and he mentioned my work in the context of the 150th anniversary of photography in the now-defunct Camera Canada magazine. What an honour!

“Perhaps each of us might celebrate photography’s 150th anniversary by selecting … a
few pictures that affect us deeply … Rosemary Hasner’s photographs are now part of my
personal visual pantry, and their broader significance for me is that they could not exist
as they are in any other medium. Thank you, Rosemary.”
(Freeman Patterson, Camera Canada, Winter 1988)
