“In my pictures, you never know, that’s the mystery. It’s just a suggestion and you leave it to the audience to put what they want on it. It’s fashion in disguise.”
- Deborah Turbeville

Born in 1959, Malcolm is an architect with a passion for photography. As a student studying architecture he was drawn to the black and white street photography in Paris and New York City from the 30’s-60’s in particular the photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Brassai, Sophie Calle, Raymond Depardon, and Robert Doiseau. While studying photography at the Ontario College of Art and Design and the Ryerson School of Image Arts, he became interested in the black and white fashion/portraits/fine art photographs of Richard Avedon, David Bailey, Lillian Bassman, Imogen Cunningham, Peter Lindbergh, Irvin Penn, and Ruth Bernhard from the 60’s&70’s. Malcolm was a finalist in the TZ International Photography Community’s Zebra Awards ( 2012 & 2014, & 2016 ), and the Photographer’s Forum Magazine Photography Awards (2013 & 2014 ). His images were featured in Black & White Magazine’s Portfolio Awards issues in August 2013 & August 2015, 2016, & 2017, and Black & White Magazine’s Single Image Awards issues in February 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. In October 2017 six of his images were featured in The Opera Volume VI , a fine art monograph published in Germany.
