About

Alice Zilberberg is an award-winning Fine-Art Photographer. She was born in Tallinn, Estonia, raised in Israel, and is now based in Toronto, Canada. Since graduating from Ryerson University’s Photography program, she has been on a mission to share and inspire creativity. Her work has been displayed in galleries, publications, auction houses, and collections internationally.  

Zilberberg merges traditional photography and computer illustration, creating images that bridge the platforms of photography and painting. Her work marries reality and fantasy, echoing elements of surrealism and baroque art. Using photo-manipulation metaphorically, her images explore themes such as female power, the natural environment, personal identity, and the human condition.

Her work places a new gloss on traditional themes. The characters in her works are women that are powerful, capable, alluring and defeating
— Bezpala-Brown Gallery
She extracts the essence of female power, removing outdated notions of a weaker sex and questioning our values
