behind and in front of the camera

As a photographer, it is often super awkward to be photographed. At the same time, it's great practice to sit and be the subject of another artist's work (to see how they work, and to learn from it). Farah and I put our artists' photo shyness aside and got together on Saturday to do portraits of each other for a women artist exhibition that's happening here in Montreal. These portraits are just a few of the collection we worked on together.

Farah is an extremely talented graphic and web designer, as well as (clearly) a photographer. I am a huge fan of her work, and am so happy that she's the one designing my forthcoming website. Being friends with her is one of the things that makes me happy to live in Montreal.

Hilarious, I was trying to find Fuschia's website, stumbled accross your review (very well done btw), AND then stumbled across picture of Farah, whom I typically run into at fuschia lol. It always amazes/surprises me just how small montreal is :D.
