52 Weeks of Self-Portraits

05/52 Shadowplay

52 weeks of self-portraits (1)This week’s self-portrait was created using my projector and a photograph I took in Vancouver of cherry blossoms (from this post actually). It hasn’t felt like Spring at all in Montreal with its continuous dark skies and gloomy weather so I decided to create my own Spring backdrop. I’ve had my projector for almost 6 months and haven’t really found the time or patience to learn anything, so if you have any links to good tutorials let me know in the comments because I am hoping to start using it a bit more. Me and Victor want to create a duo where he dj’s live and I do the visual. I love that idea, merging both of our passions together. I’ve included another one of me below, it’s hard to decide which photo to use!

Inspiration:

“To the depths of the ocean where all hopes sank, searching for you
I was moving through the silence without motion, waiting for you
In a room with a window in the corner I found truth
In the shadow play, acting out your own death, knowing no more”

Cherry Blossom Season

Spring always reminds me of cherry blossoms. It was my favourite season when I lived in Vancouver for that very reason. There are blocks in Vancouver you just walk down and see petals everywhere covering all the lawns and road. It’s beyond beautiful, I miss it every Spring as you can barely tell in Montreal when the seasons change (there was actually snow on Tuesday night, SNOW). I loved when I lived in Vancouver walking around with the cherry blossoms and the Japanese magnolia everywhere. I wanted to revisit and thought I’d share with you the last time I was in Vancouver during the cherry blossom season….
