About this series: Scene in Toronto

One of my fascinations as a photographer is the process of observation – looking at and seeing things. So while I like to capture in camera the people and places that catch my eye, I’m also interested in what catches the eye of others – that which they choose to look at, that which they can’t help but look at, that which they choose to ignore and that to which they are oblivious.

What catches my eye are the decisive moments, when all the elements in a scene come together to best tell a story, the quiet moments in between that are more about mood than action and the moments of transition yet in between those where on the surface, everything is visual chaos, but on occasion you can see these odd but compelling tableaus forming which are rife with so many possibilities.

This show is my first attempt at weaving together a tapestry of my own observations with those of others to comment on the observation process itself.
