About the Artist:

Paul Osadchuk, freelance photographer and recipient of four Ontario Art Council awards, studied photography at York University under Michael Semak and Shin Sugino. He has exhibited in Australia, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, and Ukraine. His photography ranges from documentary to abstract and can be found in galleries across Canada, including Manitoba, New Brunswick, and extensively throughout Ontario.

To quote the artist: "The chaos of our present world has created confusion and distraction, causing us to lose touch with the familiar. We have become overwhelmed by the bigger picture and miss what once gave us pleasure. My close-up images of something larger are an invitation to show one's pace and breathing; to focus on the smaller things; and to let one's heart rediscover things that used to matter - such as these hidden gems."
