Chris Shepherd

Toronto based artist Chris Shepherd uses the medium of photography to document the ever-changing urban landscape. Best known for his Subway series, his approach is directed by composition, colour and form and largely influenced by contemporary architecture, painting and sculpture. For the past decade, Shepherd has focused on capturing urban and pedestrian life in isolated moments of tranquility. Empty subway platforms, vacant storefronts, forgotten industrial spaces, or simply the abandoned nooks and crannies of ordinary spaces all become subjects of interest.

Shepherd's distinctive street photography has more recently been complemented by studio work that continues to explore composition, colour and form while simultaneously experimenting with the art of photography and the physical photograph as an object.

Shepherd’s work has been exhibited across North America, and is included in major corporate collections in Canada. Most recently a number of his works were acquired by the HBC Global Art Collection in New York. 

UPCOMING EXHIBITION:
December 1-15, 2018
350 Dundas St West, Toronto
Opening Reception: Saturday December 1, 2-4 pm - Artist in Attendance
