I was writing for St. John’s arts-culture paper The Overcast right up until my recent move to British Columbia. As part of the gig I was also tasked with getting headshots of the folks I wrote about. This one was my favorite: Jose Rivera, director of the Refugee and Immigrant Advisory Council (RIAC). Photo taken outside his office on Water Street, St. John’s, June 2014.  Original article here.

This is local artist Christina Hamlyn. She’s been commissioned by the city to do some work on our otherwise ho-hum traffic light boxes. She did the “Starry Night” inspired Signal Hill work near the Village Mall and is currently at work on this majestic (and very purple) caribou at the corner of Lemarchant and Harvey Road.

She also hates having to wear a city-mandated safety vest while working outside, but she is willing to suffer for her art. You can check out some of her other work here.

"What are you doing down there with that camera?"

"Taking a picture of this car."

"Oh. It’s my birthday today!"

"Happy birthday!"

"Will you take a picture of me?"

"Absolutely."

Scott, writer and sommelier in training. (The bottom pic is him looking up the site on his tablet as I was saying good-bye.) Nice fella . I liked the peak lapels and short-cut jacket. Guy’s got a little panache. Panache is good.
