Toronto Photographer Nicky Jameson a finalist in the Waterfront BIA My Waterfront Photo Contest
Local Toronto photographer one of 50 finalists in Waterfront Photography Contest, exhibits winning art photograph in Queen's Quay Terminal.
Nicky's photograph, “Winter Morning on Toronto's Waterfront” of Bathurst Quay in Toronto, joins 49 other finalists from the contest at the “My Waterfront Photo Exhibit” between September 26 and November 2 at Queen's Quay Terminal. The event is presented by CitySightSeeing Toronto.
The My Waterfront Photo Exhibit was created as an opportunity for amateur photographers to showcase their work in a public arena, while at the same time highlighting many of the memorable sights along Toronto's waterfront.
Understandably, Nicky was delighted to be chosen as one of the finalists. “I was incredibly proud to learn that out of over 300 entries, mine was one of the winning finalists. The feeling is indescribable, especially as this was my first time of entering the contest.”
The Exhibit kicked off with an Artist Preview Gala on the evening of September 26 in Queen's Quay Terminal to honour the finalists, which Nicky of course attended. “The gala was wonderful,” she said. “It was great to be recognised and celebrated for your photography, especially when it is a theme that you love.”
Nicky – who was born and raised in London, England, but who has lived for over a decade in the Toronto Harbourfront neighbourhood - is a photographer with an eye for the hidden beauty that can be found in everyday situations when you know where to look and in what seem to be, at first glance at least, ordinary places.
Her winning photograph perfectly encapsulates in one moment what most Toronto residents will remember as the long bleak winter of 2013/14. The art print is of a row of posts, benches and trees uniformly standing to attention and all covered in a light-to-medium dusting of snow. The perspective of the photograph is expertly composed in a Kubrick-esque “one-point”
“I am always out shooting with my camera,” said Nicky. “Even if it's so cold I can only bear to be out around fifteen minutes or so. This was the case with "Winter Morning on Toronto Waterfront,"
Winter shots are some of my favourite photography, as it's so interesting to see something familiar made completely unrecognisable thanks to show and ice.”
As well as the Queen's Quay Terminal Exhibit, Nicky also showcases her work at the Arts Market Leslieville at 1114 Queen Street East in Toronto. You can find out more about Nicky and her art at her website, http://nickyjameson.com.
