The Canadian Icons Project has been an ongoing photographic portrait study for over ten years. Conceived by photographer Dixon and makeup artist Meliase Paterson, it is a celebration of some of Canada’s most accomplished individuals. Some are famous internationally and some strictly within their particular circle of expertise. All are remarkable and iconic for outstanding contributions to their craft. Having documented 127 icons to date, Dixon is laying the foundation to defining Canadians both culturally and as a nation.
