It is very exciting to finally announce the launch of my online gallery, palebluedotphoto.ca! It has been a labour of love and I am happy to present my gallery to you. I hope you find my work unique and beautiful and that it inspires you to take a few photos of your own!
With that said, thank you for your time and interest in browsing my gallery. My name is Marc Parravano and I am a Toronto based photographer with a passion for travel. I love to photograph a variety of subjects, however, I specialize in street, travel, and landscape photography.
My love for photography began when I was 11 years-old and I was given my first camera. As a child, I was, and still am, fascinated by photography. How amazing that at the press of a button, a fleeting moment in time could be frozen? How exciting, that with vision, patience and care, a story can be told?
After graduating university, I travelled throughout Europe and India, and came home with thousands of images. Images which preserved the unique, fleeting moments of my experience. Images which enabled me to share with others an aspect of my story and perspective. It was such a delight to travel and make these photographs, that I was inspired to become a photographer.
The name, Pale Blue Dot, came about as an expression of my love of travel & photography. The famous image of the Pale Blue Dot (above) is a singular point-of-view of our planet. It offers an unforgettable glimpse of our entire world set in the vastness of space. In my photography, I endeavour to present a unique perspective of the world. To tell a story that is both beautiful and unforgettable. So this is an invitation to return often to this space as there will be an ever-changing, curated, gallery of images, from this beautiful and lonely Pale Blue Dot of ours. These are portraits of our planet. I hope you enjoy them.
