My work is intuitive with an aesthetic sensibility that is entirely my own. I use no visual aids in my creative process. Instead, my method draws on my personal insight of life from a deeper place where the image takes shape through inner guidance.

What takes shape is a series of contrasting themes from force to subtlety and softness; conflict and peace; harmony and disorder.

I believe, as Boccioni stated that art should be a slap in the face, and so I tend to be drawn to bold expression - in shape; colour; and, my favourite, oversized canvasses.

The majority of Lori Ryerson’s life/work experiences have revolved around communications in some fashion. Initially, it was through the performing arts, later through the written word. In 2010, she returned to school to learn photography. Lori’s doesn’t usually set out with a preconceived shot in her mind, seeking a specific arrangement of things. She prefers to find random alignments that convey a story to her. Lori looks for the narrative in urban landscapes, detailing fading echoes of lives lived. She watches for little mysteries in commonplace occurrences.

Elizabeth Stanton is a photographer and long time Toronto resident, originally from Liverpool, UK.
When she bought her first camera it gave her the drive to explore her surroundings even more than she had, and with a more deliberate eye. In the early stages of Liverpool's long journey of regeneration from a city in decline she took pictures of the Albert Dock which still showed the ravages of World War 2 bombing campaigns, as it was finally set for the redevelopment that's turned it into the tourist hub it is today. This was her world.
