May 7th - Green City Acres - Kelowna

Curtis Stone of Green City Acres is growing some beautiful food.  I had the chance to capture him in his element this week, just in time for the pre-release of his new book on Urban Farming. 

The Urban Farmer

Growing Food for Profit on Leased and Borrowed Land

by Curtis Stone



There are 20 million acres of lawns in North America. In their current form, these unproductive expanses of grass represent a significant financial and environmental cost. However, viewed through a different lens, they can also be seen as a tremendous source of opportunity. Access to land is a major barrier for many people who want to enter the agricultural sector, and urban and suburban yards have huge potential for would-be farmers wanting to become part of this growing movement.
The Urban Farmer is a comprehensive, hands-on, practical manual to help you learn the techniques and business strategies you need to make a good living growing high-yield, high-value crops right in your own backyard (or someone else's).

the portrait project - exhibition

opening this friday night at the remington gallery!  
This project is intended to inform an intentional movement toward contemporary comparative portraiture by facilitating dialogue that challenges our understanding of and relationship to the photographic portrait. From historic to contemporary portraiture, there are two types of photographers. One will convey the essence or energy that they believe to be the subject and the other is the photographer who imposes a conceptual representation of their own idea on the subject. The former is a romanticized representation of the subject while the latter suggests post modern ideology. The Portrait Project is a collaborative, process oriented exhibition featuring photographers Madhava Musterer, Katie Huisman, Alex Waber, Lynol Lui and Lindsay Elliott.
