UPCOMING (GROUP) EXHIBITS

More exhibits coming up. Group ones, these.

OTTAWA:

I have 2 photos in a show opening October 13th at SPAO…..their Red Wall Gallery.
That’s at 168 Dalhousie Street.

TORONTO:

This one’s kind of interesting. A while back I was commissioned by the City of Toronto and
Toronto Life Magazine to go there (Toronto, that is) to produce a portrait of Adonis Huggins.
This image was to be a part of the City of Toronto’s “Face The Arts” advertising campaign.
By way of explaination here’s a bit of the blurb from the Face The Arts press release:

Each month, a different acclaimed photographer will take the photos
of the individuals profiled in Toronto Life. Tony Fouhse was chosen to
photograph Mr. Huggins for Toronto Life’s March issue on newsstands
February 13. Mr. Fouhse has been a photographer since 1976, winning
a National Magazine Award in 2004. Text accompanying all photographs
is contributed by Toronto Poet Laureate Pier Giorgio Di Cicco.

As Program Director of Regent Park Focus, Adonis Huggins has a keen
interest in the use of community-based media as a tool of engagement
and social change. Over the past 14 years he has been working with youth
in RegentPark to develop prevention programs and activities that offer young
people opportunities to explore radio and print journalism, and audio, video
and photography arts.

Whatever.

To celebrate the Face The Arts program and Toronto Life’s 40th anniversary there’s going to be a big, swank
one night show at The Carlu, in Toronto. It’s invitation only so you (probably) can’t go.

Here’s my shot of Adonis for you to look at:

COPY

A little while ago I sent the same two pictures to a bunch of art directors/designers i know.
I asked them to pick a word or two and put their words over the photos.

I’m always interested in photos and copy. How words can change the way you see a picture.

Here are the responses:
