My most recent work is a large, contemporary photography piece called, The Gathering — The Embodiment of the Mind (Oct 2018). It consists of many different expressions of self that began as an adventure in personal discovery, but has since become a visual portrayal of compassion and acceptance of all aspects of one’s self.

About the artist

Tjalling Halbertsma
Collingwood, ON

Tjalling is a Dutch-Canadian photographer. Passionate about visual expression, he began at film school in Holland in 1985. The next step in life led to travelling, and after he met his wife in France, they started a family and enjoyed a variety of careers across Holland, France and Wales. Having a strong desire to explore and pursue all the opportunities life presented, they moved to the Caribbean island of St. Martin, where they lived for almost fourteen years, co-owning and operating a successful international trading business, as well as a kitchen design studio. Drawn again to new adventure and the wish to continue his first passion, Tjalling and his family moved to eastern Canada where he graduated with Honours in Photography. Here he developed his specific style in Classic Portraiture and telling stories of social and self-awareness through contemporary photography in large print format.
