Neil Dankoff is a landscape photographer who has a unique approach and technique that is easily recognizable. Each final piece consists of multiple images captured with varying exposures and focal points, seamlessly combined. In 2015, Neil was commissioned by the luxury Hotel X Toronto to prepare a series of works to decorate the halls and rooms of the new hotel. He spent nearly three years travelling the globe to capture over 800 landscape images for the hotel. In 2018, he opened the Kandy Gallery in the lobby of the hotel.

Neil will discuss his overall Hotel X project – the inspirations and challenges, the criteria for selecting scene locations and the mechanics behind some of the images (such as the one of Guilin, China made up of 12 different photos and 3 focal points). For this project, he used the $100,000 Phase One camera system, because, he says, “it’s the top-of-the-line camera available on the planet, with a quality that just surpasses anything else.”
