Cynthia Chalk was a Canadian photographer best known for her work in nature. Born in Ottawa, Ontario, Chalk was a life member and fellow of the Montreal Camera Club. She co‑edited the club's newsletter, the Cameragram, and served as chair of the Nature division of the club. She also served on the executives of the National Association for Photographic Arts, later the Canadian Association for Photographic Art, and the Photographic Society of America. Her work was published in Outdoors Canada magazine and was included in the National Film Board of Canada exhibit "Photography 75" and in the National Collection of Nature Photographs.
Chalk’s photographs have appeared across Canada, including in Reader’s Digest and such diverse publications as the Anglican Church calendar. Some of her work is archived at the National Film Board.
Much of her work focuses on capturing the beauty of landscapes and nature. In the 1970s and 1980s, Chalk travelled to Bathurst Inlet in the Kitikmeot Region of Canada’s Nunavut Territory in the far north, to capture the breathtaking landscapes.
Cynthia Chalk was 104.
