Blurring the lines between photography and painting is Michael Sidofsky, a full-time travel photographer from Toronto, Canada. In his debut book, Wonder Around Every Corner, he travels the world from Poland and Indonesia to Germany and the USA in search of new angles and imaginative takes of some very familiar sights. 

Sidofsky's cinematic edits of romantic cityscapes, colorful skylines and dramatic landscapes are influenced by his grandfather – an avid impressionist painter with an eye for color, composition and storytelling. But of course, his personal style has developed as his knowledge of the editing technique expanded and he gained more confidence in his work.
