Hope you can participate in the Zoom meeting Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 7:15 p.m.when Street Photographer James Ip will speak. Here is his artist statement...As a former journalist and communications professional for the past few decades, I have used words to tell stories. Now, as a photographer, I make images to convey ideas and emotions.I have always had an “artist” influence - I took after my late father, who was both a fine and commercial artist, and was also a member of a camera club in Toronto’s Chinese Community in the '70s and ‘80s.I didn’t develop my own interest in photography until the past few years, when I purchased by first DSLR five years ago. I didn’t discover street photography until 2017 when someone commented on one of his photos online and began researching online.I’m lucky to be living in a large city like Toronto where there are lots of opportunities for this style of photography. My favourite spots are Union Station and Yonge-Dundas Square.

Through her photography, Leah Denbok's mission is to help humanize the homeless and draw attention to their plight.
Leah has been taking photographs since she bought herself a used Canon EOS Rebel T2i from a local hockshop in the summer of 2012. Inspired by the work of British photographer Lee Jeffries, she has been concentrating on high-contrast portraiture. One of her photographs was awarded first place in the Blue Mountain Foundation of the Arts Juried Art Show. She was recently the subject of a mini-documenary that aired on CBC’s ‘The National’ about her photography and stories of people experiencing homelessness. Leah is thankful for the mentorship of National Geographic photographer Joel Sartore. When Leah was only 14 Joel wrote of her that, “She is well on her way to becoming not just a good photographer, but a great photographer. And I’m not kidding. The veteran Toronto photographer, Mike Jordan, wrote of Leah that she is an “emerging superstar”, while well known Hamilton-based street photographer, Alex Zafer, calls her a “mega talent.”
