Campbell River BC, 2014

Recently, some of my work was accepted into a fairly high-profile group show and I needed a new bio for the exhibition catalogue.  So naturally, I called on my novelist wife (Joëlle Anthony) to write it for me. One of the cool phrases she came up with had to do with me spending most of my adult life wandering around the world with a Leica slung over my shoulder “in search of the exceptionally ordinary”.  This snap from a recent trip to Vancouver Island illustrates that sentence very well.

Torso, 2011

From a one-day project where people were asked to bring their favourite piece of art for a collaborative photograph. This fellow made the torso (of himself) when he was a young man and he quickly agreed to pose naked to create this image of his former and present self. Natural illumination from the skylight of the yurt where we were working.

Another frame from this series is here.

The Not-so-grim Reapers, 2014

Some people in my community are making hay the old-fashioned way, with scythes and pitchforks. From my Islanders Series.

Desert Storm Parade, Crossville, Tennessee, 1991

I was not a fan of Desert Storm. For that matter, I’ve never supported any war anywhere. My pacifist tendencies aside, I want to wish all my friends in the states a happy Independence Day.

The Molloys, 2009

This looks like a studio shot but it was made in their living room which has great natural light. Leica, 50mm, handheld.

Leaving America, 2009

Today my wife and I will be celebrating Canada Day along with all our friends and neighbours. And next month, we will be sworn in as new citizens of our new country. An immigrant is not something I ever thought I’d be but it’s worked out very well and I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I miss my friends back in the states, especially my music buddies, but Canada is home now and it feels just right.

Antony Holland, 2014

My friend Antony turned 94 this past spring and today the Governor General announced that he will be receiving the Order of Canada. It is the highest honour the country can bestow upon a civilian.

Dear Old Dad, 1980s

My father passed away in 1989. Ten years later, I wrote and recorded a song inspired by this photograph. The bridge begins with “Got a picture of him by the lake, with his stogie and a pole”. A while back, WGN aired it during the seventh inning stretch of a Cubs game on Father’s Day and you can watch the clip here.

Bend, Oregon, 2009

A few years ago, I got on a through-the-viewfinder kick. Haven’t done any of these in quite a long time now but here’s one of the keepers from ‘09. An Italian rock band used this for the jacket of their 7” vinyl EP.
