NEIL DANKOFF

 

Neil was born and raised in Montreal where he studied Film & Communications at McGill University before heading west to Toronto in 1998. It was at this time that the first digital cameras began to emerge and Neil was instantly hooked. $1400.00 got him a 1.3 megapixel Olympus. 

Having three young children, Neil's wife discovered his true talent....waking up early. Along with his photography skills and great love for the outdoors, landscape photography quickly became his passion.

Neil was fortunate to have the opportunity to travel the world and develop his own style of panoramic, landscape photography. Using a Phase One, medium format camera, Neil's unique approach and technique result in a distinct look that is easily recognizable. Each final piece consists of multiple images captured with varying exposures and focal points, all seamlessly put together in an effort to transport the viewer to a specific time and place. 

Neil became a staple in the Toronto art scene and was represented by the prestigious Lonsdale Gallery. Over the next four years, the gallery featured Neil's work in several solo exhibits.

 

In 2013, Derek and Kirsty Stern accompanied Neil on a photography trip to Africa. The trip was picture perfect and many more adventures were booked...Bora Bora, Hawaii, Iceland, China, Japan, France, Bolivia etc... In 2015, Neil, Derek and Kirsty opened Kandy Gallery in Montreal and are currently building a Toronto Kandy Gallery that will open in February 2018.
