For Calvin, growing up in a family of artists meant that observation, analysis and appreciation of his surroundings would become a daily routine. His love of art and form was fostered by his father, a sculptor, and his mother, a graphic designer. Earning a Bachelor of Industrial Design from The Ontario College of Art and Design enabled him to “get his hands dirty”, and “achieve one of the hardest things”— that is—“simplicity”.
Calvin’s power of observation and his ability to “anticipate a moment in development” give his photographs a rich and moody quality. It is those subtle, and yet brimming instants that he loves to celebrate.
