Urban Fragments ....A bit about the photographer.

Photographer, Digital imaging specialist and educator, Louis Au spent the the first half of his life growing up in Macau and Hong Kong, until finally emigrating to Canada in 1981. Au currently resides in Toronto with his wife and two sons.

Before earning his Honours degree in Fine Arts at York University, Au dabbled in graphic design and fell in love with art history and art in all its forms. Au embraces both the traditional art form of black and white photography and the modern technology of capturing images in bits and bytes. After working in the photography industry for over 20 years Louis Au is exhibiting his first body of work "Urban fragments...alien world of urban terrain" as part Downtown Art + Sound's monthly event at the Rivoli.

Au's work as a photographer records his fascination with urban decay. By documenting the corrosive nature of time through the lens and  he pays tribute to the fragmentations of old relics often left to rot until demolition. Capturing the alien world of urban terrain is a dominating theme of Au's work.  Please Join us on Tuesday, Feb. 17th upstairs at the Rivoli.
