A childhood spent exploring and inspired by the beauty of nature, along with the influence of his mother’s watercolour artistry, gave Fred Horton the impetus to practice photography as an art form. He lives in the seaside village of Pugwash, Nova Scotia, in a century-old Victorian home which also functions as a gallery. From here he travels, explores and observes the variations of the seasons, light and weather conditions to create his images.
“The introduction of digital photography, with the proliferation of post processing tools, has provided me with the ability to create with much more precision and control. Using a professional Epson inkjet printer, I print my work, primarily on canvas, to share with others.”
