BlogTo Maps

I was in Queen West yesterday and saw one of these BlogTO Maps in Tealish, and about ten other stores. So what you say? Glad you asked, I’ve got a few of my photos in there, that’s what! The maps are in awesome stores all over the city and even feature a few discounts as well as a bunch of cool places to check out in the area. If you are able to grab the West one look for my photos of Jezebel, The Red Light, Sweaty Betty’s, and Thieves Boutique.

Thanks for stopping by.

I am so excited by Andrew Moore’s exhibition at the Loggia Gallery, Koffler Centre of the Arts that I’m letting people know about it in anyway possible including this blog. I have looked through Moore’s gorgeous book Russia over a dozen times and everytime the images leap off the page as they did the first time.

Moore, a photographer and teacher at The School of Visual Arts in New York, has managed to capture contemporary Russia, in it’s post-Soviet struggle. His images reflect the super-power’s former glory and a longing for greatness. Shot in large-format the photographs offer exquisite detail in book form and I can only image (though not for long!) how gorgeous they must look on the wall.

You can see a good selection of images from the series as well as Moore’s other projects on his website.

The show runs from April 29 to June 30, check out the show link for more info.

This is probably the best show in CONTACT so don’t miss it!
