Every photojunkie like myself always has a hardon for not only for equipment, but for accessories. Today, I stopped in to the Danier store at Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre, where I discovered that Toronto designer, Philip Sparks has created a special line for Danier. Among the products was this gorgeous black leather camera bag. Released earlier this year as a part of the Spring collection, the camera bag is now on sale for a mere $129. Just in time for my birthday? perhaps.
NXNE is a great time to discover new artists, new sounds, and new venues; for several days Toronto sleeplessly enjoys ecclectic variety of music. In the spirit of ‘discovery’, I recently stumbled upon a gem of a gallery: Analogue Gallery–an intimate space that houses an impressive collection of authentic candid photographs of artists/bands and iconic signed vinyls.
On Wednesday night, The Yelp party had a Snapz photobooth. Above are a few samples featuring Jason, Rayanne, Rochelle and I, with a special appearance by Affan.
Over at Allen Lambert Galleria in Brookfield Place, Alain Palement had a public installation titled, over here over there. The 12 murals installed on the floor bring an unusual and impossible perspective on various day to day rooms and locations. Spanning across the large galleria, hundreds of people walk across these pieces over the month of May.
It was interesting to see people’s reactions to the work, many walked by without skipping a beat, some skirted around the murals, making an effort not to step on them, and others viewed and interacted with the piece both viewing for different angles and actually looking at the work while they stood in the middle of it. The unique birds eye view to these everyday rooms definitely brought a different dynamic to the space and how one should view photography.
