Max Ex is finally here! Ryerson’s Image Arts festival celebrates the recent year of photo/film/new media projects from my talented peers. It’s a great opportunity to view local emerging artists and their take on contemporary art.
The opening reception is on Friday, April 27, starting at 6pm. It will be hosted across 3 venues, so plan a date night and spend the evening gallery hoping along Queen West. My photography will be included in the Gallery 1313 show, from April 18-28.

Here’s a preview of the lookbook I shot for Mad Hill, a new brand that reconstructs vintage clothing with a modern sensibility.

As I’m currently in Toronto studying for my BFA, I’ve been attending London Fashion Week front row (from my bed). I’ve posted my favorite runway looks on my Tumblr – have a peak at what trends I’m anticipating for A/W 2012.
(Pretending I’m in rainy London for the current fashion week season. Never overdramatic.)
