Born and raised in Toronto, Simeon Posen is a landscape and architectural photographer with works spanning more than four decades. His studies in architecture and stage design contribute to the unique perspective evident in his black and white photographs. Specifically, he illuminates the intricate parts expressing the structure of the whole, whether created by nature or by man.
Posen’s technique, style and composition are influenced by photographers such as Marie Cosindas, Wynn Bullock, Brett Weston and Ansel Adams with whom he studied in California.
Receiving both federal and provincial grants, Posen has conducted extensive photographic studies of the architecture of France, Austria, Iran and Greece, as well as broadly documenting the Ontario landscape and vistas across Canada.
