Our humble little book is now available at BGSQD in NYC. Next to some of our favourite publications, might I add. In Toronto, At the Same Time is available at Art Metropole, Gallery 44, and Glad Day Books. We’re hoping to get them stocked overseas in the new year!

As always, you can buy online anytime via Big Cartel. Right now, we’re giving away limited edition prints with every copy purchased online until December 25. Thank you to everyone who bought a copy so far!

Proof is Gallery 44’s annual exhibition of photo-based work by  Canadian emerging artists reflecting a range of current concerns and  practices in contemporary photography. Proof 18 showcases the  work of Steven Beckly, Linda-Marlena BucholtzRoss, Jenna Edwards, Tad  Hozumi, Mike Andrew McLean and Elise Windsor. Sincere thanks to Isabel  Martínez for her timely essay on image-making and viewing in an age of  image saturation within our virtual image culture.
The artists in Proof 18 create works that reflect on  photography’s inherent faculties, and versatility. They examine the  phenomena of light, utilize the still image to fabricate illusions,  recontextualize the found or unintended, and bring together endangered  and new technologies in interesting ways. - Proof 18 essay by Isabel M. Martínez

Earlier this Fall, I was selected by Gallery 44 to be their 2010 Artist in Residence. Since September, I have been creating new images for an ongoing body of work, We, Ourselves, and Us.  The residency has allowed me to expand on the series and explore  dimensions of identity in new ways, culminating in the first triptych of  the series. These images will be exhibited in the Gallery 44 vitrines  from December 2 to 18 with an opening reception on Thursday, December 2  from 6 - 9 pm.

This is what our apartment looked like during our shoot a few weeks ago. We tried setting a plant on fire, which didn’t go so well. Instead, I suffocated everyone with smoke, but anything for art, right? I’m really happy with the images, and especially grateful to the lovely Hanna and Laurie for helping me make them. The work will be exhibited next month at the end of my residency at Gallery 44.
After my residency is finished, Dylan and I are heading to NYC for a week. CAN. NOT. WAIT.

Our new apartment that we spent the last month and a half (I’m not even kidding) cleaning, painting, and evicting spider families from is finally ready for us to move into. It has been so stressful dealing with this, especially on top of our busy schedules; but, it’s done, and we’re excited to decorate! Oh, did I mention that we get to sleep in a little fort that you need a ladder to get to? Ah!

Last month, I found out that I was going to be the Artist in Residence at Gallery 44 for Fall 2010. I am so excited about this residency, because I will receive support to make new work for the next two months. I will also have the opportunity to exhibit the work in December. I have one shoot scheduled so far, and meeting some potential new models tomorrow. I’m really nervous, but hopefully everything will work out! Fingers crossed.
