F11PROJECT IS PROUD TO PRESENT 'SCENE IN TORONTO' BY VICTOR YEUNG

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 story possibilities.

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

About this series:

The work shown here is a collection of work that I produced for both personal projects and commissioned illustration work over a number of years.

There is no thematic string that ties all of the work together but they are connected by a stylistic approach to creating images using found objects, ephemera- like board game pieces and photographs etc as the design elements. My work has been influenced by artists such as Robert Rauschenberg, Kurt Schwitters and Fred Otnes among others.

The images shown are a combination of collage, 3 dimensional assemblage and digital montage work.

Grand stupa. Boudhanath, Kathmandu, Nepal

On April 25, 2015, a powerful earthquake struck Nepal, killing over 9,000 people, injuring 23,000 more and leaving 450,000 displaced. Entire villages were destroyed in mere moments. The international community responded with supplies and millions of dollars in relief.

The process of rebuilding Nepal is one that will go on for many years to come. Photographers Ariel Estulin and Louis Au will be hosting a fundraiser to help with this rebuilding effort. 

They will be exhibiting photographs of Nepal – the people and the landscape. All funds* from print sales will go towards the ongoing relief effort.

They are teaming up with the Planeterra Foundation in helping to raise funds for Nepal. All proceeds will go to the Planeterra's Nepal Earthquake Relief.

We hope you can join us on Sept 19!

About this series:

Have you lost your marbles? 
 
You have probably heard or used this expression yourself. It likely had something to do with playing the very competitive childhood games that involved marbles during the first half of the 20th century in North America.
 
The first marbles were produced from stone, primarily limestone, although other materials such as agate and alabaster were used. The manufacture of earthenware marbles became very popular in the 1800s, and by the 1840s glass marbles were being made in Germany. 

I love the look and feel of marbles. My eye is always drawn to the well worn, abused and damaged pieces - they have so much more character unlike the commercial photography world strives for the perfect product.

This exhibit shows a few marbles that I have collected over the years from Canada, USA and Cuba. I hope the images bring back some thoughts of your own past.

enjoy!

~ Bryan Wilcox

About the artist:

Bryan Wilcox was fortunate to grow up in a family that shared a unique passion for the craft of photography. His mother originally worked as a hand-colouring artist in a Montreal photo lab back in the 1940’s. In the years that followed, his father perfected his photography skills in the family darkroom, developing black and white images for family and friends. 

Since 1978, Bryan has been photographing automobiles and architecture in black and white imagery, then painstakingly hand tinting his selected prints. His work has exhibited at Toronto’s ‘One of a Kind Craft Show’, the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibit, and the Los Angeles Photography Center. Wilcox has participated in numerous group shows across Canada and his work is represented in collections in the United States, Canada and Hong Kong.

f11project is proud to present 'Buddhism in Nepal' at Kingsway Chiropractic Centre in the Junction

 

Opening Reception: May 2nd, 2015. 6-9 pm.

Visit Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival page here.

Religion in Nepal is an intricate mix of faiths, traditions, festivals and doctrines. Nepal is the world’s only Hindu nation with 87% of Nepalese officially declared Hindus. Buddhism is the second largest religion in this mountain kingdom and Buddhist influences permeate all layers of the society. Due to the close proximity to Tibet, Tibetan Buddhism is the most dominant and widely practiced form of buddhism in this tiny kingdom.

The intermingling of Hindu and Buddhist beliefs and practices is commonplace with Hindus worshipping at Buddhist temples and Buddhists worshipping at Hindu temples. This rich dual faith tradition binds both groups together and ensure social coherence. 

The images in this exhibit connect the viewers to the daily religious objects and acts of worship that were captured from a recent 2013 trip to Nepal. (A few of the images from the gallery above will be on view in the exhibit.)

Opening Reception: May 8th, 2014.  7 - 10 PM
The Rivoli Lounge. 334 Queen Street West, 2nd Floor, Toronto M5V 2A2


Little Ones

Childhood is a magical time. Not only are children growing up physically, but their nascent identities are being forged by their genetic disposition, their particular environment and family dynamics and of course to their individual experiences. It's a mostly idyllic time filled with play and exploration, achievement and frustration, joy and anger, possibly all in half an hour. And since children have yet to learn all the behavioural codes of adulthood, all these experiences are expressed without filters which make for vivid pictures. As a street photographer, I just try to capture these special moments when I see them.

About the artist

Victor Yeung studied photography at York University and Ryerson Polytechnical Institute and now works as a professional photographer specializing in people and places. Victor can be found wandering the streets of Toronto taking in the sights, sometimes taking pictures. You can see more of his work at:

About this series: Makros

In this series of photographs, Louis explores the world of texture with everyday natural organic objects via macrophotography.

The beautiful natural patterns and arrangements on ordinary fruits and vegetables are presented with a twist. The vegetables and fruits captured up close reveal intimate textures and intricate design only nature can offer.

About the artist

Hi, my name is Louis Au. I was born on the other side of the planet and now I make my bed in Toronto. Along the way I fell in love with photography, earned a BFA and learned figure drawing among other things. Curiosity is vital. I am passionate about seeing the culturally diverse world through the lens of my camera while capturing stories at 1/125th of a second.

I’ve been called a travel, event and fine art image maker. Photography has been my profession for the past 20 plus years. From my early days inhaling chemicals in the darkroom to pixel peeping in front of my computer screen now, the creative process of image making remains unchanged. It is always about “capturing” the moment, regardless of the medium.

MORE THAN YOU SEE

Reflections are the little visual “extras” that the combination of light and reflective surfaces offer us. They are there for the taking, if we even register them as part of our visual landscape.

Most intriguing to me are the reflections that do not exclude that which is on the other side of the window, the inside and outside mingling in one frame. Photographed, these reflections flatten space into complex compositions of transparent, overlapping layers, and in doing so, create virtual vignettes with a story of their own. Taken out of their original context, reflected compositions encourage the viewer to decipher the layers, making sense of forms on one plane dissected by those of another.

Only cropping, to emphasize the details of the layers, has altered these images. No forced overlapping of images, no photoshopping involved.

Images were taken in New York City, Toronto, and Paris (France)

Landscape photographers celebrate the beauty of nature by pursuing a pure and unspoiled depiction of the natural environment with a strong emphasis on landforms, textures, weather and ambient light. Landscape photography essentially captures spaces within the world, whether vast or microscopic, serene or moody.

In this group exhibit by six members from the Toronto Digital Photography Club, we are presenting a small collection of photographs that depict the awe and wonder of the natural environment that we inhabit. Some of the images shown are about the vividness of mother nature's colour palette. In contrast, the black and white images are primarily about textures. Some images communicate the tranquility and moodiness of the place in time while others are about the quality of light. The collection of images selected for this show are quite diverse in both subject matter and execution.

The artists participating in this group show are Luba Citrin, Roger Correia, Edith Itzcovici-Levy, Dino Melissa, Leon Shahar and Sunchie Yang.

About Toronto Digital Photography Club

The Toronto Digital Photography Club (formerly the Toronto Guild for Photographic Art) was originally established in 1947 as the Toronto Guild for Colour Photography. It is one of Canada’s premier photography clubs with a rich history and one of the oldest camera clubs in Toronto.

Business travel has been a fact of life for Antonio Lastoria during which he has experienced Asia on several occasions. After his first few trips with no visual record of theses 24,000 km journeys, he decided, whenever feasible, to photographically study some element of these exotic lands. In 2012, he visited the Forbidden City in Beijing, China.

Forbidden Details

In 1406, over one million workers including one hundred thousand artisans toiled fourteen years to construct what is known as the Forbidden City. They worked with a variety of materials such as wood, clay, marble, bronze and other precious materials to construct the Imperial Palace of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. Over 980 buildings are abundant with evidence of intricate workmanship, skill, dedication and attention to detail in this architectural marvel. This exhibit's focal point is the craftsmanship of these individuals concentrating on their artistry and creativity in every aspect of the architecture.

'Rearview' by Diana Renelli

April 28th - June 29th, 2013

Opening Reception: May 9th, 2013.  7-10 PM

Live Music by Gregory Hoskins

 

About the series:
 

 Diana Renelli  likes to play with reflection, which results in images that are by turns dreamlike, striking, eerie, and evocative. She is drawn toward the layering of shadows found on glass, and she creates intriguing images by photographing ordinary objects through this transitional barrier. 

In Rearview, talismans such as crystal rosaries, beaded mandalas, or miniature pagodas hang suspended from mirrors inside vehicles. These religious icons acquire mysterious meaning; reflections from the outside intrude upon objects in the interior, creating mood and story. The glass gives rise to an ambiguity that forces the viewer to become conscious of the space itself, and this leads to a redefinition of the suspended object. In addition, the fact that such intensely personal articles are on open display results in an intriguing tension between the private and the public. 

Other opposing dynamics appear – a figurine of the Virgin Mary hangs in front of a lacy wedding garter; a metal swastika, with all its conflicting historical connotations, dangles beside a peaceful Buddha, backlit with a golden glow ... a variety of amulets, pendants, medals, and charms stand out against Toronto street reflections.

~ Diana Renelli 2013
