Full of mystique and mystery, the photographic works of Derek Toye will steal people's breath away. Captured entirely in black and white, Derek Toye focuses on landscape scenarios that could easily be portrayed in an artistic horror film. Yet this cinematic quality goes beyond the big screen at times, creating scenes that are more steeped in fantasy worlds than real ones.
Based in Ontario, Canada, Derek Toye is a self-taught photographer who took up the medium only a year ago. He reveals, "Favorites include anything such as trees, mist or any type of scene that portrays some sort of mood or atmosphere to it." Fit for an art gallery, his black and white photographs could easily be mistaken for paintings, especially when depicted blurred or grainy.
