When people ask what I photograph, I usually launch into a long involved explanation – how what I’m doing evolved from who I am. But… judging from the glazed looks on peoples faces, that’s not working. So here goes another somewhat shorter attempt.

When I moved to Toronto I began looking for a new way to document the city. I decided to concentrate on the dynamism and movement symbolic of a city coupled with the underlying structure – the form and colours.

And that’s what I’m still doing, abstract expressionistic images of the city – movement, form and colour.
