Photographer Dick Groot has been working out of his studio since 2002. During that time, he has published books such as Come from Away: Artists of Minas Basin
2004, We Wanted It to Last Forever: Closing the Minas Basin Paper Board Mill.
His work has been exhibited at the Fototeka de Cuba in Havana Prosperidades Pasadasas, together with Cuban photographer Ricardo Elias, at Anderson in Lunenburg, and at Acadia University’s Beveridge Art Gallery in Wolfville, to name a few.
His work ranges from tidal landscape of the Minas Basin, abandoned mills to street scenes, especially markets and portraits. He has an obsession with photographing trees.
His latest exhibit , a retrospective of 65 years of photography From Kodak Brownie to Smartphone: My Journey in Photography, was held in 2022 at ArtCan in Canning at the location where he held his first exhibit Come from Away. It was also the first exhibit ever held there shortly after its opening.
Dick has a YouTube channel, Richard Groot Photography, where you can watch some videos of his work.
I photograph just about anything transformed by light.
