Biographical history

"After apprenticing with one of her native Germany’s leading photographers, Joy von Tiedemann immigrated to Canada at the age of twenty, quickly establishing herself as one of the country’s most accomplished freelance photographers with a practice that spans fashion, portraiture, architecture, interior design and, most recently, construction where she brilliantly captures the raw energy and timeless beauty of the “art of building.” Through her lens she masterfully records the process of transforming steel, concrete and rebar into architectural icons for the ages, and nowhere is that more in evidence than in her most recent project: Documenting the creation of Toronto’s The One, soon-to-be Canada’s tallest building. Perhaps the reason why her images so viscerally connect with viewers is because they boldly express her own indelible personality: energetic, endlessly inquisitive and with the empathy necessary to plumb a subject’s essence with absolute honesty and aesthetic acuity."
