about jim

I am a photographic artist residing in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. I specialize in black-and-white photography and am a traditionalist with respect to my methodology in that I use film to capture my images and a "wet" darkroom to craft my prints.

I work by immersing myself in a place for an extended period of time, whether it be locally or further afield. This allows me to produce a series of images with a common background story rather than individual, singular pieces.

I find inspiration in a wide range of subject matter, from small details to grand landscapes, and my finished work often has an abstract quality to it.

My photographs have appeared in several publications and I have had exhibitions provincially in Barry's Bay, Brantford, Cambridge, Elmira, Kitchener, Ottawa, Toronto and Waterloo, Ontario, and internationally in Szymbark, Poland and Sifnos, Greece.
