James (Jim) William Dawson (Canadian, born 1956) James is a self-taught contemporary landscape and travel photographer whose photos evoke the sublime capturing unassuming perspectives of cities and landscapes. His quest to capture unique photographs has taken him on journeys that have spanned his native Canada plus countries such as Columbia, Mexico, France, Scotland, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Croatia, and Montenegro.
His most recent large body of work titled ‘Decaying Elegance’ was taken while he lived briefly in Venice and captures this ancient city ’s centuries of gradual decline ; a reflection of what William Wordsworth captured so well in his poem ‘On the Extinction of the Venetian Republic’ ...
“ Men are we, and must grieve when even the Shade Of that which once was great is passed away . ”
James currently lives in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada.
“To convey in the print the feeling you experienced when you exposed your film – to walk out of the darkroom and say: ‘This is it, the equivalent of what I saw and felt!’. That’s what it’s all about.” – John Sexton
