Artist's Description

For me what really stands out about this shoot is the when and where of how.
The location? Britannia beach. Why is this so special? Well, I grew up not far from this beach here in Ottawa. I know live down town and I very rarely get back here. Something very interesting happened after this shoot was over. First let me give you a tiny background on me and the Summer of 2006. I went a little nuts and did about 15 full day all out shoots almost non stop. So much that I’m still going through them!
So much so that by the time I was finished shooting Erika my left eye was actually hurting so much it was going out of focus!
So after this shoot I decided to just sit and relax and watch the sunset, (with my one good eye).
So the bench I planted myself was located behind a volleyball tournament with the sun behind the players, silhouetting them.
While they where playing they began kicking up allot of sand dust. The entire scene had this eerie other world feeling.
Yet I’ve no pictures of that. Not because I was out of film. Forced by my one bad eye I was reminded that I don’t have to take a picture of everything. Sometimes it’s nice to just sit and watch.
The full set can be viewed at the link below.
