Based in Toronto, Elizabeth specializes in creative photography with an emphasis on landscapes in scenic and abstract form. These can be urban, rural, familiar and not so familiar, and anything in between.
I am a photographer and long time Toronto resident, originally from Liverpool in the UK.
A while after leaving school many years ago, I saved enough money to buy my first camera, a Nikon FM. That gave me the drive to explore my surroundings even more than I had by then, and with a more deliberate eye. This was at the very early stages of Liverpool’s long journey of regeneration from a city in decline. I took pictures of the Albert Dock in 1981, 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 my world.
There’s a lot to be seen in the world around us, both in the detail and the bigger picture, whether it’s right here now, or far away. There’s always a story to be told, whether you’re looking at flourishing green fields or old abandoned buildings. These are thoughts that influence my approach to how I make images. Photography is my preferred medium and I have honed my skills in this area more seriously over recent years.
