This series of photographs of Ontario draws inspiration from the American Luminism art movement and the works of German photographer Elger Esser. Like the Luminists, I seek to capture the beauty and serenity of the natural world through my lens, but with a modern perspective. My images are infused with a sense of stillness and tranquility, evoking a meditative quality that invites the viewer to slow down and contemplate the world around them. Like many of my other works, I explore the feeling evoked by the empty space created by water and sky. In the spirit of Esser’s work, I use careful composition and a muted colour palette to create a sense of timelessness and evoke a nostalgic mood. Through my photographs, I hope to inspire a deeper appreciation for the natural world and encourage viewers to find peace and solace in its quiet beauty.
