Don Newlands

BIO

Don Newlands was to Canadian photojournalism as Wayne Gretzky was to hockey. Top of the heap, a definer of his art, creator of a body of work which had immediate impact and continues to resonate to this day.

He was a Grand Master of Flash. An originator whose work defined photojournalism and documentary for close to two decades. As he crisscrossed Canada in a series of high performance cars, he photographed Canada coming of age.

His portraiture captured the essence in real life moments, working in a style of great photojournalists of the 1950’s and 60’s.

As an artist and researcher of life, I make connections – searching for common threads and a better understanding of myself, and the world around me. Collage is an entry point for creative growth and discovery.

What began as a reflexive need for self-expression has developed into a complex roadmap for navigating my personal belief system, identity, and visual ideology.

For over twenty years, I’ve been driven by the never-ending question of what makes us similar rather than different. I locate myself in pop culture, ethnic imagery, iconography, kitsch, hi-art and lowbrow, found objects, and street art. Using cut and paste, I explore the human condition and the creative process.

This quintet offers insight into my ever-evolving topography.

STATEMENT

There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition.”

 – Rod Serling                                                                                                                                                                      
Neither here nor there, while travelling at the speed of train, the unaided lens captures the dimensional transformations of the unknowing passenger and the British countryside in this small foray to, thru and back from the commuter zone.

BIO

I am a child of the 1950’s, third of four children of two WWII veterans. As a businessman our father travelled extensively, and we lived in various cities in Canada as well as five years in Australia. After graduating high school in Winnipeg I came to Toronto to study photography at Ryerson. On leaving Ryerson my career started with three years employment at Agfa’s distribution centre here in Toronto. I then began seeking work as an assistant/photographer and was fortunate to join with Masao Abe for ten years and Shun Sasabuchi for fifteen years. I am very grateful to both these photographers as they helped me grow both professionally and artistically.During this time I was persuing my own work, primarily event and street photography .
