Summer is coming to an end and I had made myself a promise. Before this summer is to end, I will have photographed at least one person outdoors using my large format camera. This is not a comparison or debate but there is no Photoshop, filters or actions used in this process which means there is a lot of love that goes into every step. So what does it mean when someone says large format? Here is a video […]
“SOLA” – By oneself; alone. Used as a stage direction to a female character. A beginning of a new and ongoing project. A project that developed unconsciously from a creative idea I had started to structure in 2014. Today it has become more personal than ever. From observer to participant, giving voice, ( in an unexpected manner), to what had remained a mystery for a very long time.
Last Saturday I had planned to go out on the road to return to some locations that I felt would fit some creative ideas I have been dying to put together. Unfortunately, the weather was terrible so I had to cancel out on that idea. Instead of sulking on the couch I decided to head into the darkroom to make some prints. This print is from a series I did with Peter Grogono, who is really cool and down to […]
Just a friendly reminder that I will be hosting a pinhole portrait photography workshop that will be a focus on creating unique and one of a kind creative self portraits. This will not be your typical workshop. You will find balance with light and time while creating your own personal portraits. There will be no time spent on building cameras which will give us more time to focus on the possibilities that are endless with pinhole photography. In order for […]
This weekend I got to photograph artist Titanium Mike for my pinhole portrait project who came all the way from Toronto. I decided to do a few test runs the day before for fun and to get our minds get into the groove. Each image was approximately a 3 minute exposure. It was fun, challenging and something I hope to do more of and NOT only with Montreal artists but for anyone who would love to experience this pretty […]
I am so honoured to know that my big sister Kathy, (www.smallxpressions.com), was so inspired by one of my art pieces that she recreated this piece in her own vision and style. I am the one who has always looked up to my sister and have been inspired by her strength, love, kindness and intelligence. This is such an awesome feeling!
Happy Tuesday! I am quite excited to present to you an image from a new and recent photo series I worked on in collaboration with Peter Grogono. I have not posted any of my darkroom prints, and so this year, my goal will to be doing so. The full series will soon be up on my website! http://www.oneononeart.com (you are welcomed to sign my guest book!)
Many times over I have been trying to connect with others in order to work on some creative ideas for my art exhibit that I am presently working on. It seems as though it is becoming more and more difficult, (not sure why). Even though it has been difficult, I was very lucky to have connected with Peter Grogono . I met with Peter in the studio about one month ago. As I was prepping the camera with film, we sat for […]
New portrait series now in progress! My previous post was an introduction, Exactly How It Is ,(on my One on One Art blog ), to this project idea. Thank you to Ravil, one of the first I met for this project. Upon meeting for the first time, we had a little fun in the studio with great conversation along with a mini studio session. I am looking forward to meeting with Ravil again later this month to collaborate for my series of portraits once again, […]
