About the book:

This photography book features 35mm film double exposure portraits of 16 cyclists and their favourite places to cycle in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. I am indebted to the 16 wonderful people that you will meet in this book.

You can imagine how nervous I was waiting to see and touch the publication. Naturally I’m a little but nervous for how it will be received – only one participants has seen his image. That’s John Gibson, the gentleman that has been on the poster you may have already seen.

The book will cost $15 CAD (incl. HST) and will be on sale at bikeSauce. On the night of the launch, proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards the fundraiser No Bici, No Fiesta, there’s also a film screening fundraiser I highly recommend checking out at CineCycle on June 10th. There’s going to be a range of films being show that talk about Mexican bicycle culture. Beer, food, merchandise and a super raffle are some more great reasons to attend the CineCycle event.

My book will also be on sale at the A Show on June 22nd at Artscape Youngplace – this will be where you can see more of my fellow Micro-grant recipients’ work and also my installation of the portraits! Organized by ArtStarts check out their website for ways to participate in their projects!

It is my pleasure to announce….
AB_Double Exposure Book Launch_HQ
You are invited to bikeSauce for the launch of “Double Exposure: Cyclists of Toronto” on June 9th, 7-10pm.

This book features 35mm film double exposure portraits of 16 cyclists & their favourite places to cycle in Toronto and the GTA. The book is about cycling and the meaning of memory and space. Portrait sessions resulted in a series of unique double exposure portraits taken at select locations. Together, as photographer and participant, we created these portraits that blend and embed person and place together.

Proceeds from the sale of the book will go towards the fundraising event “No Bici, No Fiesta”, organized by bikeSauce and volunteers. Vegetarian food will be served and there will be creative activities to get involved in. Please note that bikeSauce will not be doing any bike repairs on this evening.

Here’s the facebook event link 🙂
