Anthony DeLorenzo is a landscape and outdoor adventure photographer who works with film and traditional darkroom printing. He lives in Whitehorse, Yukon and he is passionate about exploring the remote landscapes of Canada’s North—his own backyard.
He bought his first film camera in 2011 and it wasn't long after that he abandoned digital photography and convinced his wife to let him tear out the sauna to build a darkroom.
Living North of 60 is a major influence on his work. Summers are spent exploring and capturing images under the endless glow of the midnight sun, often as part of extended wilderness trips. Winters are spent closer to home and the long, dark nights when temperatures drop to -40 are when he spends time in the darkroom revisiting negatives and bringing them to life as silver gelatin prints.
Between 2015–2017 he collaborated with documentarian and writer Jennifer Roberts on The Builders Project to capture the stories of people who helped build mountain biking in the Yukon. His large format portraits from the project were exhibited at the Yukon Arts Centre in September 2017.
His photos have appeared in publications including Dirt Rag, Mountain Biking Australia, Canadian Cycling Magazine, Canadian Institute of Mining Magazine and Yukon, North of Ordinary.
