Elyse Bouvier (1987) is a Western-Canadian photographer based in Calgary with a Master's of Fine Art in Documentary Media from Ryerson University (2016). She also holds a B.Comm from Mount Royal University (2010). Her work explores identities of communities, in particular, in rural Alberta, and the relationships between memory and place, with a particular fascination with how food intersects with cultural identities. 

She has presented her research and photographs in Toronto, Calgary, Vancouver, and Oxford, UK. Some recent words on the web include a conversation with Kyler Zeleny on Lenscratch; a series of images from Vulcan's Star Trek Convention on Vice; Lily Cho's "Recalibrating Intimacy" on the Royal Cafe series for Imaginations Journal; a feature on Royal Cafe on VICE Munchies by Nick Rose"Curating My Life: Musings on Instagram and Online Identity" on Medium; and writing about coffee for Sprudge.com. Occasionally, I even do weddings and other events.
