Walking & Witnessing: Anne Gibson’s Lifelong Commitment to Her NeighbourhoodThough she makes most of her images around Toronto’s Kensington Market neighbourhood, Anne Gibson doesn’t really describe herself as a street photographer. Instead, she calls herself a “gatherer of people and things.” But even if the genre might be debatable, the talent is not. The Toronto native’s work has been getting noticed, and a documentary, Making Memories, has even been made about her. Looking at her portfolio, you’d never guess that Gibson only recently got into photography…at the age of 58!
The Magic of People and Places: Storytelling Through Environmental PortraitureSo how does someone looking to improve their environmental portrait voice go from simply taking a photograph of a person in some form of surroundings to creating images that are able to elicit a clear emotional connection?
Storing and Archiving Your Photography: Diversify to Protect Your WorkHow organized is your digital archive? Are your photographs stable and protected? Do you have any physical prints, or are your images just piles of silicon chips?
The Big Lift: Stepping on Deck to Communicate a Client’s WishesLost in my thoughts, I’m sitting on an overturned crate on the deck of the Angus L. Macdonald Bridge—the 1.3-kilometre-long suspension bridge spanning Halifax Harbour—waiting for the night’s work to start.

Misadventures in Photography
No matter how prepared we try to be, no matter how much control we attempt to wield, there’s a reality none of us can escape: Mother Nature rules.
Wisdom, Wit and Other Tidbits
Long-time member of Magnum Photos and the first Canadian to associate with the organization, photojournalist Larry Towell travels all over the world for his work. Whether documenting the stories of people in conflict zones or doing an 11-year project on Mennonite migrant workers, his focus is on people.
Without the frame
If you go to a gallery to look at an exhibition by Elliott Erwitt or Annie Leibovitz or Edward Burtynsky—pick your favourite artist—you will, I hope, be struck by the cohesiveness of that work. What accounts for this cohesiveness, why is it important, and how do we incorporate that visual through line in our own work?
