Toronto`s Secret Hollows: A photographic exploration of the city’s ravines

Photo by Tony Hauser, Toronto

Toronto based fine arts photographer, Philip Jessup, spent five months photographing Toronto’s watersheds and ravines in 2003 – 2004. His visual survey appeared in Canadian Geographic in May/June 2005 and led to further exhibits in London, UK.  On September 24, 2019 he will speak to the RHS about the insights he gained. His talk will include photographs of the ravines as they appeared fifteen years ago, supplemented with present-day images of the Leslie Street Spit and Tommy Thompson Park for visual comparison.

His work has been exhibited in Toronto, Montréal, Vancouver, London, U.K., Washington DC, Louisville, New Orleans, and soon Colorado. The V&A Museum in London recently selected Flooded Tree (2005) for its retrospective, Into the Woods: Trees in Photography. A 2019 exhibit at the Pendulum Gallery in Vancouver, Endangered, featured his current survey of coastal marshlands under threat in Mexico, Louisiana, and Massachusetts. Two of these images were recently selected in an international competition by the Center for Fine Arts Photography for current exhibition in Colorado.
