Canadian photographer Tom Zsolt has been documenting the changing Ontario countryside for over 20 years. His exhibition, Ontario Gothic, during Contact ’98 in Toronto, caught the imagination of the public and of publisher Roger Boulton of Kearns, Vander Meersch & Boulton, who in 1999 published County Matters, Zsolt’s first book. This major work documented the changing land, people and lifestyles in rural Ontario and was well received by the public and the media. Country Matters was short listed as one of five finalists for the Roloff Beny Award for the best book of photography by a Canadian published that year.
Tom Zsolt lectures internationally, and has appeared on CITY-TV, CTV, TVO, and in numerous radio interviews, including with Andy Barry of the CBC. His work is exhibited in Ontario and is collected across Canada by private individuals, corporations and institutions including The Ryerson University Collection and Georgina Art Centre & Gallery. Zsolt, who has photographed worldwide, lives in Georgian Township in rural Ontario, and continues to photograph most extensively in Canada, South Western United States, the East Coast and Central America.
