Geoffrey James Biography

Geoffrey James is a Canadian photographer living in Toronto. He invests in the raw materials of light, paper, and chemicals with the power to recall things. For over thirty years, he has been investigating Western society through two opposing themes: the ideal spaces – formal gardens and sylvan parks, and the sites that record the impact of culture on nature- the wastelands of mining sites, and the economic systems of a problematic international border. James has commented that the best photography gives a sense of what it is like to be there, that it has “a mnemonic power that no other medium has, a power to recall things, which painting doesn’t have.”
