About The Exhibition:
In the spirit of supporting artists during this time of COVID-19 with an exhibition space, and with NO LIMITS on Style and Subject, this show will be hung in the large Street level windows of Creative Nomad Studios with black out backing and street spotlighting, turning the facade into a ‘Street Gallery’.
Peter Stranks has been a Toronto based photographer for over thirty years. A Ryerson University graduate, his assignments have taken him throughout North America and as far away as Morocco.
Stranks has worked on national advertising campaigns, magazine covers, and editorial features, working most recently on advertising for the film industry with celebrities like Steve Martin, Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Eugene Levy, Harvey Keitel, David Thewlis, Marcia Gay Hardin, and Gina Rodriguez.
In 2008, he completed a highly successful one man show at OMAH, where one of his pieces was acquired for the permanent collection. He revisited the gallery in 2017, and again in 2019, when one of his pieces was selected for inclusion in the prestigious annual Franklin Carmichael Canadian Landscape Exhibition.
In 2009, Stranks accepted a full time position as professor at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario where he brought innovative and creative techniques in lighting and self-expression to a whole
new generation of shooters.
The excitement and joy of being a photographer has brought Stranks back to his true love, and in 2018 he left teaching to devote his energies to shooting full time, shooting for various new productions for Netflix, Crave, National Geographic, and CBS. He is also writing a book titled, Photography, Creativity, and the Bag We Drag Behind Us.
