Rest In Peace

This blog has reached it's end.
In October my regular session of forgetting to post began but this time it didn't end. So, after all this time, I have decided it is time to move on.
I'm moving to a new platform, Tumblr. This is to rejuvenate the concept of Archipelago and to interact with a whole new public. It's been a blast, it was some great times.
Farewell Blogger,
and good morning ARCHIPELAGO.

Form and Structure

A trend I've been noticing in my own work is the use of structuralism. I've been drawn to pulling away information and details from my photographic process until the objects I'm photographing are reduced to nearly just their form. What the objects are is not hidden, it is simply less important than the shapes it creates.
Also, Christmas lights.

First is Walking Man, a photo I made because hey, I make photos.
The second is Kids Today (no offence anyone, if I meant anything it'd be hypocritical), another in the A Vs. B Saga.

Quick Greek linguistic lesson.
Photos~ Light
Graphie~ Writing or drawing
Photography is etymologically light painting. So here it is up close.

How do I blog again?

These are two images I submitted to a 'zine' a few friends of mine are creating focusing on youth. I don't know if either will be chosen but I submitted them nonetheless. The second I shot specifically for this project.

A Bit of This, A Bit of That

Some summer images so far.

A Vs. B

This summer my good friend Bobby and I were finding ourselves a little bored. Both being in Ryerson's photography program we had been working on assignments all year long and found ourselves without much inspiration. So the idea came about to have a competition. It was to be friendly of course, and without winners, just two photographers taking a different word each week and making an image. Then we posted the image and saw what people thought. The themes so far have been: Cage, Nature, Break, B&W, Grief, and Canada. These three are Can't Cage the Beast, Stages of Grief, and Natural Beauty covering the themes of Cage, Grief, and natural, respectively. The easiest format for this is Tumblr (which I put aside my personal distaste for) and that is where our competition is hosted. It can be found by following the tab underneath the title of this blog called A Vs. B. We'll posting every week (ish) for the foreseeable future so feel free to check back.
