Esther Vincent is fervent about colour, light, shadow and time. She also loves working with the camera. She delights in the click of the shutter, the precision of the settings and the subtle way that various lenses change the way things look. She moves through her days in wonder and awe at the constantly changing world around her and is thrilled when she is able to successfully crystalize tiny snippits of what she sees. Vincent learned photography from her father, working with him in his darkroom. Like her father did, she enjoys creating expressive photographs of the human subject. Finding the right mood to capture a person’s inner world is a challenge that Vincent embraces with ardor. Her professional focus is on portraits, events, journalism and archiving performance. Her published photographs have appeared in The Dance Current: Canada’s National Dance Magazine, The Globe and Mail, The Toronto Star, Pearl Magazine, The Peterborough Examiner and Canadian Organic Grower among others.
