A native of Toronto, Canada, Steve Silverman is a Canadian award-winning,
fine art photographer with a keen and unique artistic vision. His
love and appreciation for black and white photography are reflected in his
dramatic landscapes and engaging cityscapes from across Canada.
Steve’s photos are like visual metaphors. They are an intimate, interpretive
vision of the world around him. He creates implied comparisons that forge
links between the mundane and the sublime. His patented technique of
photo impressionism serves to evoke mood and emotion rather than
capturing the literal representation of a scene or landscape.
He will often use strong tonal contrast and textures in his photos, and his
style is easily recognizable by his use of strong leading lines combined with
the interplay of light and shadows to create depth, giving a two-dimensional
image the illusion of three dimensions. Simply put, he can transform a simple, banal scene into a compelling black & white fine art photograph.
Steve’s photos have been published internationally in books
and magazines. He is also a guest speaker at local GTA camera clubs.
Steve works in conjunction with several Canadian art galleries and
publishers on a variety of corporate and home decor fine art
projects. These include Denison Gallery, Liss Gallery, The Hartman
Gallery, Southlake Gallery, Select Art Gallery, Mima Fine Art Publishers
and Out of the Blue Art Publishers.
