I am excited to have a selection of work from Cousin, We Have Grown Up featured in the latest issue of DOC photo magazine based out of Poland.
Last month I photographed the cover of Strategy Magazine’s November issue, which features the top creative advertising agencies of 2013. The concept for the cover speaks to the Gold-winning Agency of the Year, John St. and the many viral videos it’s created over the years (see Catvertising, Pink Ponies). Our talent for the day, Farley, was fantastic. What a majestic feline.
It is hard to believe that I started this photographic exploration nearly 3 years ago.
Please be sure to check out the exhibition at Toronto Image Works running now until the end of June!
Cousin, We Have Grown Up provides an intimate exploration of nature, identity, and spirituality. The project focuses on Jon, a young man seeking an authentic connection with the land as he attempts to discover his true, raw self. Combining photographs, video, and candid journal entries, Cousin, We Have Grown Up produces a layered portrait: an intimate adventure-misadventure story of a young man trying to live freely.

In June of 2012, I traveled abroad to Iceland, where I spent two weeks 10 days shooting (both photographs and video) a place where the sun doesn’t quite know when to settle beneath the horizon.
A short film that I created, entitled Ísland, and three accompanying images were shown in a group exhibition for two weeks in late October/early November.
Which brings me to the “Nordic Nights Movie Series.” This evening, in Toronto’s Eaton Lecture Theatre, the documentary film Gnarr will be featured. The comedic, yet inspirational film shows comic Jon Gnarr as he campaigns to become Mayor of Reykjavik.
Prior to the feature film, my film Ísland will run. I welcome you all to come out and view the two films.
