Darren Rigo was born and raised in Moffat, rural Southern Ontario. The relationship he has formed with the local landscape heavily informs his work. Now living and working in downtown Toronto as a BFA Photography graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, he regularly returns to the local, natural landscape to photograph and collaborate with the land that means so much to him. His work draws from this personal history and attempts to beautify what we normally view as ordinary while dissecting the ways we are connected to nature and to each other.
This is a sample of his work
