⎨Alexa Stark, Pt 1⎬
A few months back, I met Alexa through Kim who invited me to Alexa's store opening on Alberta. A few days later, I asked if I could photograph her for my artists and artisans project. At the time, the project was in its infancy -- I had only photographed Betsy at work and wasn't sure where to take the project from there. For a few weeks (er, months), Alexa and I put off the shoot until I ran into her at the Art Museum last week and we decided to get together the next day. I hauled half of my film gear across town and spent a couple of hours in her ultra modern, light-filled live-work space and these photos are (part of) the result. I went a little overboard and shot two & a half rolls of 120 (mostly on the C220) and 2 rolls of 35mm on the 1N. You'll see Alexa's face (and her beautiful curly hair) in the next installment.
