Louie Villanueva-Eyre (b. 1995) is a photographer based in Moh'kins'tsis, located on Treaty 7 territory—also called Calgary, Canada.

Born to parents of Filipino descent—Villanueva explores identity, poetry and prose, and the dialectic of art and craft. A fascination with mindfulness—intermingles with philosophies of art and manifests in a way of seeing applied to everyday activities, formal portraiture, and walking.

A background in photojournalism, event and studio photography provide a base for Villanueva’s examination of form and subject. His devotion to the medium together with an autobiographical approach to work give him generous mechanisms to communicate with.

Villanueva is the photography technician for the University of Calgary Department of Art and Art History, documents weddings for Light Theory, and operates Neat Film Lab with his partner, Haley Eyre.

He was nominated for the 2022 Scotiabank New Generation Photography Award.
