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"

From my trip to Brantford.
Thanks to John and Jim for setting this up. What a day !
I knew as soon as I was invited what was needed, I knew I had to do this place justice and to me only gritty, grainy, Black and White film would do it.

This day belonged to Tri-X !!

The story behind the shot ....
I found the old chair and dragged it out into a spot of light. I was concentrating so hard on close up shots until Doug called me. "Come over here and look" I walked over, turned around and saw this!
Thanks Doug for pointing it out :-)
