Chris Gordaneer- Aesthetically Stunning
A picture is worth a thousand words, however, people tend to see only what they wish to see. There are more than a million beautiful photographs on this planet, but only a few can take you to a different world for a moment. I find Chris Gordaneer’s pictures fascinating, having the ability to tell wonderful stories through them.
Sometimes when I stare at a photograph, I like to place myself at that exact moment in time when the picture was captured. It might seem odd, but I find myself being extremely curious as to know the story behind that picture. Yet, I know that most of commercial photos don’t have any real interesting story behind them, but that is when my imagination is just able to run wild.
Chris Gordaneer’s pictures just seem to have that spell on me, for every time I gaze at them I find myself creating these stories about the places and what it would be like to have been there. He manages to have the same effect on me with his portraits, and pretty much every kind of photo he takes. His pictures are stunning, and really there is not much to be said because the images speak for themselves. Just try to stare at one of the pictures will ya? And now, visualize yourself at that place… Is it a warm day? Are you alone? What do you see around you? Can you sense any smells? Come on… go ahead, don’t be shy!! Meditation is good for the soul, and if you have beautiful pictures like these then you might just as well take your time to enjoy them.
Gordaneer is a very well established Toronto based photographer with giant clients, and a successful 12 years career with more than 100 awards under his belt. He is a partner of Westside Studio in Toronto, which is the largest photography studio in Canada (not shabby at all). Nonetheless, he seems to still maintain a humble attitude towards his job, and it shows in his works because not only is he very good at it, people often seem to be very pleased to work with him. Some of you might be able to recognize some of his works, but for those of you who don’t just got check his pictures out ‘cause they’re simply aesthetically stunning.
