From an early age photography has always been a passion of mine. The creative process was intriguing to me as well as the power to capture a moment in time. Photography was more than black and white, it was being able to see in colour. We have a responsibility in this world to record and expose the beauty as it is. Photography has evolved but will always remain pure in my heart. My journey began in South Africa and through the lens I saw a divided nation. Behind the glass Photojournalism was a vehicle to the struggle. Acquiring a National Diploma in Photography [Pretoria, South Africa ], a brighter future was seen in the viewfinder in Canada's uninterrupted beauty of a nation of Canada where I continue to be inspired to create.

Brandon Steen is a contemporary painter born in 1970 and raised in Toronto. Brandon’s contemporary paintings are deeply multi-layered and place focus on the historic qualities of his beloved Toronto. His love affair with the city where he grew up is evident in the striking and realistic compositions. He uses rich colour palettes and a pentimento cast to his under paintings that peels back the focus to bring new perspective to some rather old places in the city.
