The 24 Hour portrait project 2018 & 2019
This small project started in March 2018 as an attempt to take a portrait an hour for 24 hours as a love letter to Chilliwack, B.C. After an additional 2 rounds, the project changed into a series of images every hour (12 hours x 2 days) showcasing local stories big and small. Images are taken and edited via mobile during the day of the project, posted live on Instagram and Facebook along with write ups written by participants. The emphasis for 2019 will be on sharing more of these stories, accompanied by both candid and posed images of individuals experiencing our community. All 3 rounds for 2018 have been completed, and selections from rounds have been published in Raspberry Magazine. There will be only one round announced for 2019 in Chilliwack, stay tuned. If you would like information on how to bring the 24 Hour Portrait Project to your community, please get in touch for more information.
Guys + Flowers: 12 Creative Portraits with Blossom with Quik Pik | 2018
On Hiatus. In 2018 Britt from Blossom with Quik Pik and I made plans to create a calendar and/or photographic series that featured men with flowers. So often the narrative of florals features women (and themes of flowers + women is very close to my own personal art practice) - I think it’s important to challenge gender norms of beauty and “delicacy” (and honestly, I think flowers are far from delicate), and show representation of male-identifying people posing with beautiful floral arrangements. In making this series in 2018, we photographed a number of set ups - and in editing those images, while beautiful, we found that sometimes the narratives actually suggested men waiting for women - to give them flowers. SO, we’ve taken a break from this series for now and will revisit it, and reshoot portions of it. Look for updates soon on how we plan to move forward with this project, and how we plan to tweak our process to spend more time prepping, shooting, and conceptualizing.
The creative recharge & refocusing festival | 2019
The Creative Recharge & Refocusing Festival (started in 2017) seeks to create an inspirational, recharging art space for photographers, models, creatives, stylists, and hair and makeup artists.
This year, the project is open to brands and collaborators looking for creative content and promotion throughout the "festival" (a one day event, usually including a road trip, which includes editorial style photo shoots and video work). The hope is that this project will encourage an environment of creativity & making for all involved, while fostering sustainable income within the arts community.
