So I'm here today to show you what I have been up to for the past week here in North Bay!
My mother is an artist (Michele Karch Ackerman). She currently has a residence at the North Bay hospital for her to work on her latest art show that will be showing at The Kennedy gallery here in North Bay in about two years time.
This show is inspired by Tuberculosis sanatoriums and how people had to stay in rooms with brown hospital curtains to recover. So my mother decided to make one large hospital curtain made out of hundreds of vintage handkerchiefs as a healing process.
She plunges into the water and lets the cool waves envelop her.
She lets her mind wander as she lets the sand seep between her toes.
She loves the beach.
Yesterday I had the joy of photographing a friend at the beach.
Aurelia is a wonderful girl who I am currently staying with for two weeks in North Bay at her wonderfully sweet house.
We walked to the beach last night as the sun was setting at the hour of 8 pm. She was daring enough to dive into the freezing water and I asked to take some pictures.. it went on from there as one of my favourite photo shoots to date.
I plan on having a photo shoot a day and letting my creative feelings run wild in these two weeks.
