To travel is to meet and share experiences with people. The theme of my exhibit this year, ‘Portraits’, reflects my interest in the diversity of expression, facial countenance and physical characteristics of the people I see. From young to old, portraits tell stories, evoke emotions and create the connections to places and culture. I hope you will enjoy my images of some of the interesting characters whose ‘portraits’ I have taken over the years.
Bill Lockington, a co-founder of SPARK, has been a life-long photographer who teaches, exhibits and is a frequent contributor to periodicals and publications. His work is exhibited in the traditional forms of framed prints and large canvases in a number of private and corporate collections and in self-published photography books. He has participated in numerous workshops with, among others, noted Canadian photographers Freeman Patterson, Andre Gallant, Lyle McIntyre and Dennis Minty. Today Bill teaches digital photography and image editing, through the Art School of Peterborough, and has taught at Fleming College’s Haliburton School of Fine Art. Travel strongly influences the subject matter of his photography. He enjoys macro work and the pure creative side of the photographic medium. Favourite thoughts on photography are “there are always pictures in the pictures” and “your best pictures are those right around you”.
