This is part 2 of my Artist Series where I shoot a roll of 35mm film and document a Toronto artist making their art. This is a personal photography project that I have started and its something that I love to do in the slow winter months. Part 1 can be seen here. I had the pleasure to photograph Thierry Levesque, a talented Toronto artist who makes very colourful and unique art. She works in her home and I think there is a lot of positive energy as you stand in the room literally surrounded by her art. Some of these pieces took over 50 hours of work so it was interesting to see parts of the process. There is a frame of Thierry with a hula-hoop and the story behind that is that its a great stress releaser. Imagine the time and effort spent doing something for hours at a time. Every now and then she will bust out the hula hoop and spin away. I shot this session on my Contax G2 with Portra 400 film that I rated at 800 and had my film lab (The Find Lab) push 2 stops. Here are some pictures.
