Group of Seven Roosters – FR-CP at De Luca Fine Art

In a few short weeks my first exhibition with Flying Rooster Contemporary Projects will open at De Luca Fine Art Gallery. The exhibition features seven Flying Rooster  artists: Manuel Bujold the co- founder of Make Art Public, award-winning sculptor Scott Eunson, architect and photographer Dieter Janssen, Montreal artists Jessica Wee, Michelle Bui and Scott Harber and me!

I am exhibiting several pieces from the Urban Remains/Modern Canadian Interiors series I’ve been working on for the last couple years that has expanded into the Rust Belt of the USA including the image pictured above on the invite (cropped) from the St. Agnes / Martyrs of Uganda Parish Church.

The pieces I am showing will only be available through De Luca Fine Art | Gallery. Check back in October for a sneak preview of the show on my blog!

Detroit Rock City – literally

A couple weeks ago I celebrated Canada’s May 24 weekend with friends exploring abandoned and vacated Detroit with my new Rolleiflex E2 TLR.  We did the requisite tour of Packard Automotive, St. Agnes/Martyrs of Uganda Parish Church, the Lee Plaza Hotel/Apartments, Highland Park and Fisher Body 21.

I could have stayed in Detroit for weeks, the whole city is a photographers playground and after the sun sets there are wonderful places to get a delicious glass of craft beer.

These are not photos from the Rolleiflex (I’m still scanning my transparencies), but they are p&s snaps that hint at the magic of what is to come.
