This week my partner Gage and I photographed a pretty rad group from Guelph called VERSA. One of the band members also happens to be my cousin. The audiovisual collective is led by Monika Hauck and Alex Ricci. We wanted to work around this year's Winter Stations in the Beaches and also capture the essence of these neat people. An element of their band that is really unique is that they pair the music with projections that visualize sound, so I incorporated a couple of their projections into the photos as well. Here are a few of my favourite shots.
I hope you love new skies
And my carefully curated allies
The flowers that blossom in spring
And the fear that changes bring
Now we're lit up by the city
We're so itty bitty
The pond where we live has grown
But really, so have we
Taken during a time of transition.
These were shot on 35mm film from Japan that we found for under a dollar at a garage sale.
