I love this series of photos by Susan Burnstine as featured in a gallery at File Magazine. It inspires in me both a desire to run out and photograph animals, and break out my neglected pinhole camera.
If you are looking for a new coffee shop to try in Vancouver, do check out Re-entry on Main Street near 28th Avenue. I can’t recommend their coffee personally (because I don’t drink it) but I’m told it’s really good. I had an ovaltine, because I was impressed they had such a thing on the menu, and was treated to a “pull-apart” made of the most divine flaky and buttery pastry I’ve ever had the pleasure to eat. Seriously.
This was taken about a month ago. Benoit contacted me about photographing him and his wife Julie shortly before she was to give birth to their first child. We discussed a few ideas beforehand and Benoit requested I use some of my favorite tools during the shoot – red fabric, the holga camera, and cross-process film. It was a pleasure to work with them on this shoot and the results were very pleasing for all three of us.
