Rafael Goldchain

Born in Chile, Goldchain's work mainly consists of beautiful colour photographs of Mexico and Central America . Much of his work is a subtle social commentary of the life led by the people in these areas. His pictures, frank, although sometimes amusing, speak for themselves. Goldchain won the prestigious Duke and Duchess of York Award for excellence in photography. Goldchain has been part of a group show entitled “Broken Ground” which has been touring through Europe and Canada for almost two years. His most recent work consists of a series of large monochromatic photographs where Goldchain re-stages his own image as his ancestors, both male and female.

Peter Gottlieb

After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan School of Art & Design, Gottlieb co-founded a Toronto based design firm where he served as creative director for ten years.  In 2009, Gottlieb moved to the countryside near Algonquin Park to be close to the Canadian Shield landscape that has always inspired him.  His quest for imagery is most often by canoe, kayak, snowshoe or ski, always searching for the interplay of light, shadows and reflections.
Commencing in the mid 90’s, Gottlieb has continually revisited the technique of meticulously re-constructing his photographs by weaving two identical images together. Through this process, one image is divided into hundreds of individual images within the accurately re-constructed whole.  The woven texture of the finished piece plays with light and angles in many of the same ways the original subject may have when originally photographed.

Vladimir Kabelik

Born in Czechoslovakia, graduate of FAMU (Academy of Film and Television Arts), Kabelik started his professional career as a motion picture director in Prague. As an antidote to his filmmaking activities, he soon embraced photography, quietly documenting a life under the communist regime. He left his homeland in 1981, living briefly in Austria and Switzerland before settling in Ontario.  Kabelik continues his work on television documentaries, while teaching and building his photographic observations of Canada through collections of monochromatic prints. An early adopter of Piezography process, Kabelik works with both film and digital media, enlarging his stills on acid free mould-made paper. The final product, carbon pigment image transfer, is a pure photography with a touch of hand-made graphic print.

Nomi Kaplan

Kaplan has been exhibited widely in the United States, Canada and Israel. Kaplan has developed a large body of work, most recently concentrating on images of graffiti, pop culture, and the residual history of civilization that has left its mark in today's society. Kaplan combines many images and materials on a photograph to create a collage, which she then takes a photograph of.

Michael Levin

Levin moved from Winnipeg to Vancouver in 2003 and was immediately drawn to its expansive seascapes and unbroken shorelines.  Levin's photographs often show the abandoned and discarded artifacts of man's interface with the sea.  They evoke visual relief in their minimalism and are a poignant remembrance of human presence long after it is gone from the scene.

Brian Murphy

Murphy has been a student of photography for nearly 20 years. The pursuit of unique subject matter and perspectives has been a passion and is the primary reason for his devotion to black and white photography. Brian's compositions pay homage to both natural splendor and made-made beauty as is evident is his balance of urban and natural works.

Mats GH Nordstrom

Nordstrom, originally from Sweden and now residing in Canada, has worked as both a commercial and fine art photographer. His latest work, "Devices of Temporary Control," emerged from an interest in how humans organize themselves and the essentials. Starting with sinks and plumbing it soon enveloped steering wheels, train-stations, bridges, trucks and a host of other devices invented to simplify our lives. Nordstrom's subject matter deals metaphorically through both mechanical and organic imagery addressing humanistic issues such as growing older gracefully.
