This blog started as a project of taking one photograph a day for 365 days in 2010.
It taught me a lot about photography, both technically and theoretically. I continue taking pictures where-ever I go. I compiled an archive of images, some good, some bad, some inspiring, some boring, some unique, which I would not have had otherwise.
In 2010, I had my first photo exhibition at the McGill Arts and Craft Fair.
My photos have been featured on several websites and blogs: Une Parisienne à Montréal, CCLA, Wiseap, CAUTG Bulletin and Directory, and printed in Inquire, Journal of Comparative Literature, as well as in my co-authored book: Berliner Chic: A Locational History of Berlin Fashion.
This blog is also about inspiration. The title of this blog is, of course, an homage to both Jean Luc Godard and Susan Sontag.
My new project for 2012 is called “366 Days of Happiness” (it’s a leap year this year) – an attempt to capture happiness, both visually and conceptually, every day for one year.
“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability.”
(Susan Sontag, On Photography, 1973, p.15)
“The photographer is supertourist, an extension of the anthropologist, visiting natives and bringing back news of their exotic doings and strange gear. The photographer is always trying to colonize new experiences or find new ways to look at familiar subjects – to fight against boredom.”
(Susan Sontag, On Photography, 1973, p.42)
