Feed the passion and "Face North" at this annual motorcycle art show happening in Toronto

The FEARLESS motorcycle photography exhibit is in it's second year. This year's theme is "Face North" happening Thursday October 12th in the Lakeshore Boulevard East and Carlaw Ave area (28, Logan Avenue) in Toronto.

The one night only exhibit curated by local moto photographer Dan Lim / The Moto Foto and will showcase a recent body of work featuring unique portraits of people and their motorcycles. Each one-of-a-kind large format photo will be available for sale by silent auction.

All proceeds will go to support Diabetes Canada. It's personal for Dan, his son was diagnosed with type 1 Diabetes at a very young age, making Diabetes Canada a natural choice for a beneficiary to the exhibit’s proceeds.

Tickets are free but you need to register to attend - see you at the show!

Last year, in the show's inaugural year, the event raised $10,000 for Diabetes Canada and brought out the motorcycle community. This year organizers will attempt to raise more through a silent auction sale of unique and beautiful prints.

In the spirit of diversity and inclusion, each subject faces due North

Each piece of art has been shot with its subject facing due North to create a sense of uniformity and symbolism.

Naturally diffused by the sky, northern light is consistent and never creates a direct light source. Each unique print has been conceptualized as a diptych, where the subject and their bike are positioned next to each other to demonstrate the connection between human persona and personalized machine.

“Just as no two snowflakes are alike, each of us are unique. Motorcyclists share a common bond over their shared passion but each rider brings an individual experience through the clothes they wear and the motorcycle they own,” says Lim, “That’s what FEARLESS II: Face North is all about.”

Over $10,000 was raised for Diabetes Canada at last year's event.
