Gonna start blogging cause that's something people do.
Currently, I am working on a photo book with Stephen Harper (no not the former prime minister of Canada) Click here for his Tumblr. We did a 5-day road trip together back in August around the Selkirk International Loop. It's been a long process putting a book together, longer than I thought. He wanted to let our photos marinate for a while, so we didn't start looking at them until late fall. November through March has been us spending time putting spreads together, photos that look nice side by side. We've since narrowed down hundreds to about 60 pages of work that I'm quite happy with. I was unsure how it would go, as art is quite personal, and I was expecting us to have more disagreements. It's been quite pleasant, no real headaches! We're going to print ourselves, and might even hardcover bind it! Very excited for the end result.
I'm putting a little book together of my trip to Japan, though probably just a few copies. It's been easier with Stephen to bounce ideas off and doing it solo has proven interesting. Some photos I get a little too attached to even though it might not be that strong. Not sure how it should look. Some photos are very graphic (shapes/colours, not pornographic), and others are more lifestyle/storytelling. It's not a mix I'm sure works too well together.
Since returning from Japan I've been dealing with some health issues, mainly a bum knee which isn't getting any better and the doctor isn't sure what's going on either so that's reassuring! Hopefully resolved by summer, because I definitely need to be hiking!
More updates soon, or maybe I'll forget about this. I do want to get better at writing so this would be a good project to put effort into as well, even if no one out there is reading.
