DJ Alexandra Richards

I was very excited when the opportunity came up for me to interview DJ Alexandra Richards, daughter of rocker Keith Richards and model Patti Hansen, for FAJO Magazine. 
I also took some images of her DJ-ing for the event Right to Play.

I am working on a new series of images, a concept I had thought of when I was still in NSCAD, yet I could never pull it together. I realize now it was because I had not had enough life experience. I recently started thinking about the idea of our society as wearing masks; never showing our true emotions/struggles on the outside. This is my MASK project brought back to life, and though I am still shooting, I wanted to share a sneak at what I am doing. 

Here is a sneak at part of one of the images...I am not ready to show them until they are complete!

Sugar Beach in March

I discovered Sugar Beach when I got lost last summer, while looking for Cherry Beach. So happy I did get lost, because Sugar Beach has become my 'escape' from the city.

Here are some images I took the other day, though windy and a bit chilly, it was so nice to be by the water.

Remember Friendship Bracelets??

When I was in South America, I bought a few bracelets, 'friendship bracelets' to be more precise. I have always loved the look of layering 4-5 on one's wrist. I used to make them, and recently started back into them when a friend of mine asked me to make one for her.  The trend that will never die, but I believe there is a way to make them look a bit more formal. Let's see what I can come up with, but in the mean time, enjoy these images!
