I was back in Vancouver last month to photograph a few projects for a few clients. This was a fun one, with perfect weather for splish splashing in the sun. Hawthorne Splash Park is a collaboration between Miza Architects, PWL Landscape Architects and the City of Surrey, construction by Fricia Construction. What a fun addition to a growing community, great work everyone!
Congrats to my client Haeccity for getting their Armoury District condo renovation in Vancouver published on Dwell! It was a fun project to photograph. Click to read more..
Check out Canadian Architect's post about the installation on the University of British Columbia's campus designed and built by School of Architecture + Landscape Architecture. I had the opportunity to work with Joe Dahmen and SALA again to photograph construction and the final design.
I was back in the Armoury District in Vancouver to photograph this project for Haeccity Studio Architecture. A two-storey apartment renovation, with feature stairs that have a continuous perforated metal screen connecting the entrance level to the living spaces above, styled to create a contemporary retro vibe.
<< Major announcement >>
The recently completed photography gallery, The Polygon, in North Vancouver designed by Patkau Architects is now carrying 'architects are assholes' mugs in white and matte black. Also a special edition of 'photographers are assholes' mugs (it's only fair) in white - matte black coming soon - are now available in the gallery shop.
I recently photographed the new restaurant Juniper Kitchen & Bar in Chinatown for New Format Studio. Henry and his team added the steel details found around the bar and throughout the seating areas. I love the muted blue tones contrasting the grey metal, designed and built by Simcic Uhrich Architects and Harmony Pacific.
I'm pleased to announce that my 'architects are assholes' mugs are now available at the concept design store, Vancouver Special, located on Main Street in Mount Pleasant. You can order through their website or contact
me to purchase one for that special architect in your life.
3" and 11⁄2" stickers are available to purchase at Vancouver Special as well.
architects are assholes....because they have to be
Picture it: Ottawa, 2003, I was in my second year studio at Carleton University's School of Architecture when I realized, architects are assholes. My first silk-screened tee shirt made
its debut about a year later.
Three photos from my Strung series have been added to my catalogue of available framed prints at the Vancouver Art Gallery's Art Rental & Sales Department. The 18x24" prints can hang in a triptych or individually.
Just found out two of my small 12x12" framed prints from my Same Soup Different Flavour: 100 Pairs of Converse Shoes photo series, available at the Art Rental & Sales Department, sold and four additional prints were requested by an interior designer to use in an upcoming residential project.
I've photographed many projects outside and around the Vancouver Art Gallery but this is the first time I've been able to document an installation inside. Amber Frid-Jimenez' (half of AFJD) multi-media installation, This Is Not a Test, was part of the gallery's largest exhibition, Mashup: The Birth of Modern Culture. Spread over all four floors, the exhibition explores the history and evolution of mashup culture. The show comes down this weekend so hurry and check it out!
Last month I was commissioned by renown Toronto architecture firm Moriyama & Teshima Architects to re-photograph their city hall project in Surrey, BC. The architects wanted images that better showed the building in use, details of the west facade and during classic west coast weather, which I love since rain and grey skies can create atmospheric light that I find beautiful.
