Tom Zsolt


6573 Old Shiloh Road, Georgina

Canadian photographer, Tom Zsolt has been documenting landscapes, towns, and life across North America for 50 years. His exhibition, Ontario Gothic, during Contact ’98 in Toronto, caught the imagination of publisher Kearns, Vander Meersch & Boulton, who in 1999 published County Matters, Zsolt’s first book. Showing the land, villages and people of rural Ontario, Country Matters was short listed for the Roloff Beny Award for the best book of photography by a Canadian published that year.

In 2009, Zsolt’s work was selected for an exhibition in Beijing, followed by a 10-city tour in China, titled Canadian Cameras at Work. Zsolt’s photograph Niagara Falls, depicting Asian tourists being photographed before Niagara Falls in winter, was selected as the poster image for the exhibition. In 2015, the Georgina Centre for Arts & Culture, and Contact 2015, hosted Reluctant Subject, Portraits by Tom Zsolt exhibiting 40 years of his portraits, which was followed by the release of the book. Tom Zsolt lectures on photography, his work has appeared on the cover of novels and in magazines.

Zsolt’s photography is collected by private individuals, corporations and institutions including The Image Centre at TMU (formerly Ryerson University), OMERS, Royal LePage and Borealis Capital. The largest collection of his photography is housed in the permanent collection of the Georgina Centre for Arts and Culture in Sutton, Ontario.
