Stephen Bulger (b. Toronto, 1964) practised photography as an avid hobby throughout his youth. Eventually studying at Ryerson University's School of Image Arts, he became interested in the history of photography and began organizing exhibitions. He is the founding manager of the Ryerson Gallery, originally located at 80 Spadina Ave. in Toronto, where he sat on the exhibitions committee and organized over thirty exhibitions.


After graduating from Ryerson in 1991, Stephen worked in the photography department of the Ontario College of Art. While employed as a technician at the Ontario College of Art and Design, he opened the Stephen Bulger Gallery at 700 Queen St. West on March 23, 1995, later moving to 1026 Queen Street West in 2004, and then to the current location at 1356 Dundas St. West in 2017.


Stephen has curated over 200 exhibitions; been the representative for numerous Canadian and international photographers; published catalogues and books; and has participated in many North American and European art fairs. He has served as a President of the Board for the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), Washington, D.C.; is a past Chair of the Advisory Board for the Ryerson Image Centre, Toronto; and was a Member of the Board of the Canadian Cultural Property Review Board. He is also the instigator and co-founder of Toronto's CONTACT Photography Festival.
