photographer jorgen klausen                   


I immigrated to Canada from Denmark in 1957. In the early sixties a serious interest in photography led me to apprentice with an acclaimed master photographer in Saint John, NB. I was the owner of a Gallery & Framing Shop for many years and involved in the local art scene.  I have been the recipient of several Canadian photography awards and my work has been featured in many publications. I have been keenly interested in photography for almost as long as I can remember. It has always been a way for me to express myself. I am totally fascinated by "form" - whether human or in nature. As Edward Weston wrote, "how little subject matter counts." It's not important if the subject is a rock, a tree, a reflection of a human face or body ... what is important is the variance of light, texture, shape and design. I hope you receive some measure of pleasure from viewing these photographs.
