Major Life Events:

  • Studied photography at the Regent Street Polytechnic

  • Live Peace in Toronto album cover
  • Cover photo in Yoko Ono's book Grapefruit

I admire this artists work because his artwork is very simplistic. In all of his photographs, he has a very obvious center point for the picture, and is very good at attracting the attention of the viewer by placing his focus in the center and making them stand out.
