Solomon has taken his lens in search of the gems of nature in our urban environment. He searches, not only in the obvious locations of our majestic parks, but the more obscure ones found between roads, in culverts and springing forth from cracks in our urban landscape as nature adapts and transforms in its survival to live amongst our concrete jungle. Solomon strives to see that which we miss as we walk past in our flurry of life.

The "Urban Escape" photos for Contact Photography Festival was on display at the Birds & Beans Coffee House, Toronto, Canada during May, 2009.
