Stephen is a Canadian artist.
Stephen spent years photographing amazing people, incredible landscapes in every form. He photographed such places in South and West Africa, Colombia, Mexico, California, USA, Canada and Europe. This experience shaped his view of how landscapes in continuous flux can be captured through a photographic lens.
The natural landscape and its stylistic transformation has drawn him to the work of James Van Sweden, Fernando Caruncho, Bunny Mellon, and to the English garden of Russell Page, to name a few.
He admires the photographs of Karel Plicka and Edward Burtynsky and works by Robert Raushenberg, Robert Frank, Germaine Krull, Kikuji Kawada, Gego.
Stephen’s photographs are lyrical, as if notes in a musical piece or words in a poem or text, all standing on their own merit sequentially, were overlaid onto one another to represent their totality in a single moment.
Stephen was born on the west coast of Canada and lived there until moving to Toronto, Ontarioi to study art, at York, Toronto and OCAD Universities. He owns a successful landscape design company.
