Sherman Hines, Canadian photographer, has gained international respect for his unique ability to capture the world on film. His work has been described as sensitive and observing. William French of the Toronto Globe and Mail wrote,“… Sherman brings an eloquence to his pictures that makes even a dandelion look beautiful.”
After four years of studying photography at the Brooks Institute of Photography in California, Sherman’s artistic abilities were keenly developed. With the philosophy that “photography is either a constant searching for the extraordinary, or nothing at all,” he obtained the highest honors ever awarded a graduate of the Institute.
Since that time, Sherman has had published over 70 photographic books featuring his images. He has also merited such prestigious recognition as Canadian Photographer of the Year as well as a Fellowship in the American Society of Photographers. He has been awarded six degrees in professional photography and two gold medals of excellence in photography, from the Institute for the Achievement of Human Potential in Philadelphia and the National Association for Photographic Art. He is a member of the Camera Craftsmen of America and received an honorary doctorate of literature from St. Mary’s University in Nova Scotia.
