Wynne Neilly is a Canadian , queer and trans identified, visual artist and award winning photographer who is currently working out of Toronto. He is most known for his monumental cover of TIME Magazine featuring Elliot Page in 2021 along with receiving recognition for winning Scotia Bank's New Generation Photography Award in 2023.
His artistic practice, most often, is an investigation into engaging with the queer and trans identity, both on an individual level and relationally within the community. Wynne’s work aims to open up a conversation around how we read and interpret intimacy between queer and trans bodies, both in the subject matter itself and from his gaze as the image maker. The content of his work seeks to reveal and support the notion of individuality and non-normative presentations of gender identity as political liberation and personal healing.
