About

Eric Banwell
Eric photographs life. If his passion for music drives his soul, then it is his tireless pursuit of justice that guides his images of people, politics and the music scene.  He was born in Toronto, Ontario but grew up north of the city. Music was a passion from an early age that evolved into a way of life as a music creator. He has a degree in political science and has always had an interest in social issues which permeates his songwriting. In 2012, he chose to pursue a diploma in digital photography at the School of Design and Visual Arts at Georgian College. He is forever grateful to his mentors at Georgian who provided much valuable knowledge and wisdom in photography, but also who always encouraged him to pursue his dreams.
