Andrew Zimbel

Nathan Phillips Square
Booth 86

Andrew Zimbel is a Toronto-based photographer. His training in photography started early at the elbow of his father, George Zimbel, a renowned humanist photographer. From a young age, he believed he would follow in his father’s footsteps. He always had a camera with him and would often spend time with his father in the Darkroom, where the red safety light would reveal the amazing images swimming up from the developer bath. Life had other plans.

After a decades-long hiatus from photography, Andrew's photographic journey was rekindled by the advent of the iPhone and his discovery of the magic of Photoshop. The beauty of the everyday caught in a moment while rambling through ravines and trails in the city is combined and repositioned to create magical landscapes. His eye, trained with gentle patience by his father, sees the promise in the ordinary, the magic of light and the power of nature.

His artistic vision is driven by the subtle nuances of the world around him, focusing on the beauty that often goes unnoticed. This renewed passion for photography culminated in his first self-produced one-man show, "Whispers of the Ordinary," on his 65th birthday, exploring the intricate connections between nature and humanity.

Andrew is the father of two amazing daughters, he has had a long career in the event industry and is a writer and coordinator of the Junction Writer's Group. 2024 will be the first time he has participated as an artist in the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair.

The images are limited editions and are printed by the Image Foundry on Canson Platine Fibre Rag 310.
