Artist Background / Bio
Photography Based Artist & Printer
As a photography based artist and Master digital printer from Toronto, Rod has combined his passion for life, travel and photography to create both photo-documentative and artistic works.
From photojournalism to experimentation with new techniques of processing and printing, each photograph requires its own process in order to find its own meaning.
All works are painstakingly printed by the artist, using archival grade papers and canvas with pigment based inks to ensure quality and long life.
Although Rod started photographing the world around him in 1975, it has been within the last six years that he has focused exclusively on his photographic based art. Whether shooting locally or half way around the world, Rod strives to create works that will inspire others to explore the world around us, to look at things little differently.
"If someone stops to ponder one of my works,...just for a moment, I have succeeded."
