Edithvale Community Centre - Banquet Hall


In keeping with our Abandoned theme competition, our speaker for this evening will be Timothy Neesam who will deliver his presentation “Modern Ruins” – a photo journey through urban decay, abandoned buildings, and more.  His talk will include a chat about equipment and a pre-amble about safety but most of the time will be spent on his photography and as he says “the joy of finding something you really love to photograph … and …. following your muse, even when you don’t, at the time, recognize your muse for what it is”.

Timothy Neesam Bio
Timothy has been a photographer for decades, with a wide range of interests including macro, landscape, portraiture, architecture, street, and photojournalism.

His fine art and documentary photography is published in a variety of magazines and newspapers, and he has exhibited in Canada, the UK and the US. His photography has appeared in many publications, ranging from the Toronto Star, the Architect’s Newspaper, the Indian Express, Germany’s Geo Magazine, and The Colorado Review.  He is currently the photo editor for CBCNews.ca.

Timothy also enjoys travel, and his love of exploring unusual and out-of-the-way places led to his interest in abandoned buildings, and to this presentation.

He is a former member of this club when it was the Toronto Guild for Colour Photography and later the Toronto Guild for Photographic Art.  You can see Timothy’s work on a variety of subjects, including abandoned buildings, on his website: https://www.gumshoephotos.com/
