for the Musicians' Portrait Project:
In 1979, while pursuing his 31-year career with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Ron purchased his first camera and began an intense course of personal investigation into photography, its history and application. Two years later his photographs were exhibited in Toronto and awarded two prizes at the Déja Vue Gallery of Photographic Art Juried Competition. Since then his work has been exhibited at museums and galleries in Cleveland, Washington, New York, Miami, Toronto, Lausanne, and Paris. He is the recipient of two Ontario Arts Council Grants as well as the 2003 First Prize for Limited Edition Books from The Alcuin Society for his book, The Gryphons of Paris published by Voirin Editions ( http://www.voirineditions.com/ ) .
His photographs of Paris can be found in such notable French collections as the Bibliothèque Nationale, the Bibliothèque Historique de la Ville de Paris, Maison Européenne de la Photographie, and the Musée Carnavalet. He is represented by Jane Roberts Fine Arts – Paris, France ( http://www.janerobertsfinearts.com/ ) .
