Mr. Tim Van Horn

Since age 5, Tim had already taken his first photograph and knew that he wanted to be a “cameraman.”  He grew up and traveled around Canada with his family who worked in the Canadian Air Force. It was through this exposure that he was able to develop a sense of duty to the people and fall in love with the cultural experience in his ever-changing surroundings.

Over the past eight years while working on the Canadian Mosaic Project, his calling to be an adventurous and inspirational role model has become apparent. He sees himself as a creative-foot-soldier on his tour-of-duty to unite and present our country with an all-encompassing and authentic portrayal of who we are as Canadians.

It is the people he has met, the stories he has heard, the kindness that he has witnessed that has given him the passion and undying conviction to Canada from the position of a humanitarian. He states, “Canada is my home, these are my people and it is my moral obligation to share and celebrate the story of our collective humanity with Canadians of all ages.”  His vision is to inspire the nation and to enhance the belief in the multitude of amazing possibilities, the talents within the people themselves, our communities and in this great country we call Canada.
