Eamon Mac Mahon

“The Port of Toronto was initially created by winds and currents which brought silt from the Scarborough Bluffs to form a natural harbour. It is a dynamic and constantly changing place to this day. Within it can be found wild areas that provide refuge from the same natural forces which created the harbour and from the city itself. This series is an exploration of these hidden places and their transient inhabitants.”

Eamon Mac Mahon has been exploring the Canadian wilderness, from the far north to the ravines of Toronto, since he began to walk. His photographs have appeared in various publications including The Walrus, National Geographic, and The New Yorker, as well as exhibition spaces such as the Griffin Museum of Photography in Boston, The Detroit Institute of Arts, San Jose’s Institute of Contemporary Art and Higher Pictures. Mac Mahon has been named one of PDN’s 30, published in three of Magenta’s Flash Forward books, and nominated for the Prix Pictet.
