Double Vision 2016!

Double portrait made by myself and Toronto artist Juliana Kolesova for the CAPIC show called Double Vision, which opened last night. What a fun party! Thanks to all my wonderful friends who came – it was great to see you! This interesting show is at Todmorden Mills’ Papermill Gallery and runs until March 20.

Waking Dream

Just exhibited this portrait at the Red Head gallery in Toronto as part of Nuit Blanche. The gallery’s exhibition theme was “Insomnia”.

This work is from Touch my Unstable Matter collection in which I explore transitions, tipping points and loss of equilibrium. The woman closes her eyes but does not sleep. Instead, from wakefulness she slowly shifts to a meditative state, acutely mindful.

Headshots in action!

Just did a headshot series for my talented friend and former photography student Andrew Beg. We shot at various locations and in my studio resulting in a varied portfolio of promotional images he can use when he has an upcoming gig. If you are in the Toronto area, go hear him sing – he’s great.

The Photo That Made Me: Steve Schapiro, Arkansas 1961

Great article – makes me want to go back over my work and think about a single iconic image that was a turning point. It would have been taken with the Kodak Retina Reflex my Dad gave me. That was after my Brownie Hawkeye but before I got my first Nikon!
