Originally from Northern England, Alan Norsworthy has been a photographer since the late 1960's.

He moved to Canada in 1973 and has made Guelph Ontario his home for the last 24 years.

" I remember visiting the CN Tower in the early 70's and the guide said that as far as you could see in any direction is the best farmland in Canada. That comment echoes down the years as I watch subdivisions eat up the landscape."

The area around Guelph offers up a plethora of rural images which Alan captures with his artistic vision. His work covers everything from macro photographs of flowers, sweeping landscapes, historic buildings and old abandoned farms in both colour and Black and White.

"This is where I find my inspiration, I have a need to show people the beauty I see as I walk the woods and fields of Southern Ontario"

York Road Correctional Centre - Through the tree's to the big house

On a blah kind of day on a feeling blah kind of weekend I took my D2h for a walk through the York Road Correctional Centre grounds.

Over the life of the prison the almost 200 acres of land were landscaped by the inmates. Now we get to enjoy their labours. Well for a while anyway until it gets bulldozed for a housing development :-(
