Centennial State Ballet's Nutcracker, Coppelia, and Barre Warmups
Whenever I'd get the free time, I loved to play with my camera and snap pictures of dancers rehearsing and performing. My deepest appreciation goes to the dancers at Centennial State Ballet for being my mostly willing subjects.
Toronto Metropolitan University's Production of Head Over Heels
As a member of the media team for this musical, I attended rehearsals and took shots for social media and other promotional materials. I also took headshots of the cast and crew and created some short ads for the theatre company. Lots of fun action shots in here!
IMAGES OF MY FRIENDS
Featuring Alex, Evan, Lina, Azriel, Jack, and Sam
What can I say, I like to take pictures of my friends! Some of these were to get high-quality photos for Yikes! assets, and others were just for fun.
Materials: Photo Paper, Thread, Scotch Tape, Masking Tape, Wood Glue, Safety Pins, Staples, Hot Glue, Band-Aids, and Chewing Gum.
This series was created during quarantine for COVID-19. Each of the photos of people was taken from friends and online volunteers in the clothes they would be wearing for their jobs, proms, weddings, and graduations if not for the quarantine. Backgrounds were harvested from public domain photo sites and the photos were printed, attached with various methods, and then photographed. This series is a manifestation of the frustration of having to completely put life on hold and create normalcy from scraps.
THE HANDS OF BIPOLAR SERIES
I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 in September of 2019. This photo series shows some of the struggles of living with the disorder, predominantly featuring my hands as a connecting thread.
