Anna & Fatine

Hi! Finally got around to publishing some of my favourite photos I took last year - check them out on Sukeban (& here they are below as well)

These photos are part of a loosely ongoing series I’ve been working on over the last year, photographing platonic intimacy in friendships around me. Fatine, Anna and I all went to college together - we took these photos on a really cold day in February, I walked up to Fatine’s house and Anna showed up a bit later with some pastries, I had asked them if I could take some photos of the two of them and they told me they love to take baths together so that’s what we did. Most of my work is staged/conceptual but whenever I get the chance to capture something real like this I love it so much, I love having the chance to enter into someone else’s world for a little bit. These days, Fatine just released a clothing collection (Gerald et Fatine SS17) & Anna is in a band called Security.

Amorphous / polyester zine

I finally get to release one of my favorite things I’ve shot in a long time!! I found this jewelry company based in the UK on instagram (camp jewelry) and was immediately obsessed with their weird amorphous brooches, so I shot this still life/blob photo series just playing with the shapes & my favourite colours. Wolfie did the nails & modelled for it <3 

you can check it out up on Polyester Zine & here are the images below as well!

ps working on a collab with polyester coming in january 2017… it’s going to be something big & exciting!! 

 

& for those of you in Montreal, I’ll be tabling at expozine for the 4th (5th?) year in a row this weekend! printed lots of new stuff for it :)

lookbooks n whatnot

I rarely post commercial/commissioned work on here because I tend to keep that separate but lately I’ve been having a lot of fun shooting for local designers, so here’s some images from that :)

First up are some photos from my long-time collaborator kayleigh peddie’s fall 2016 lingerie line. We shot this in two part, with my friends chloe feller & rhiannon collett modelling. I’ve been shooting kayleigh’s lookbooks for a few years now but this one was especially fun as we introduced a bit more colour than usual!!! 

I also recently shot some photos for shop biohazard’s website revamp shooting some chockers & bracelets with my friend wolfie as the model plus the cutest little critter, here are some of my favorite shots <3

Me vs others on The Photographic Journal

my pals over at TPJ asked me to send over an editorial for halloween, so I took that as an occasion to go through my archives and put together a series of previously unpublished works from my me vs others series spanning the last year or so.

These images feature friends, acquaintances, artists I admire. This series revolves around fictional dress up, self portraits rooted in no reality. These images in particular mostly remind me of how burned out I’ve been, it’s a bit of a documentation of that.

You can see it on their site here :)
