More Habs fans from 2010 playoffs.

A few things from the internet:

I am selling a print through Feature Shoot!

I answered a few questions on why I blog for Rappoteurs Photo. See my answers, and those of a few other interesting Canadian photo bloggers here (only in french).

Montreal's hockey season may be over but I still have many more Habs fans portraits to share with you.

Habs fans couples.

I was down there tonight photographing fans before the game, great atmosphere, hopefully they can make it happen tonight.

More Habs fans from this season's playoffs. Tough game to watch last night. The consolation is knowing that half the city and all of the Habs fans that I've photographed are going through the same highs and lows as me. My favourite Habs song here.

Some Habs fans from this 2010 playoff season, whom I photographed outside the arena before home games.

Exciting hockey game last night. I can tell you that this guy was not sleeping during the game. And now this means more Habs fans shooting this season, and I'm sure they'll only get crazier as time goes on. I've been shooting at the past few home games and will get my film back this weekend so I'll have lots of Habs fans work to show you next week.

Two things you should know about:
Jessica Eaton opening tonight at Push Gallery here in Montreal.

Select Gender Artist Panel discussion at Farmani Gallery this Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately I won't be able to be in New York to participate in this or go to all of the New York Photo Festival events. New Yorkers enjoy this crazy weekend!

Our fish Dostoyevsky was very sick. We heard that the most humane way to let him go was through freezing, so that is what we did.

So I had a busy few days in Toronto, visiting as many Contact shows as I could. One of the first things I did was go to the Alec Soth talk. Although Soth does not seem to have the most optimistic view of the future of photography, the talk itself was very interesting (Soth will be addressing where he thinks photography might be going in his October 8th talk as part of the Flash Forward Festival in Toronto). Getting insight into the personal motives behind his work was really interesting and made the talk worth it for me. He definitely seems to be a photographer in transition: moving away from his large format perspective and working with digital snapshots, video, and sound, all with the goal of storytelling (there was an interesting question about the difference between storytelling and documentary at the end of the talk). I must say that I am still attached to his older work and the rawness of his slideshows does not yet appeal to me. With his older series of still images we were allowed more room to make up our own stories, now Soth tells us what the story is and leads us on strange and unpredictable adventures.

A fun photo from last summer since it finally feels like summer here.

I am going to Toronto tomorrow to check out all that is Contact. I'll let you know what I liked and disliked next week.
