A week or so ago, I experienced a moment of synchronicity.
I’ve had this idea for a photo project floating around for awhile and, for whatever reason, now seems to be the perfect time to get started. The idea, not to get it all crazy hyped-up or anything, is to take portraits of artists in their living and/or working spaces. Very original, I know. But whatever!
So, as I was wondering who I’d
target ask first, my lovely friend Pam Lostracco came to mind.
She’s an artist/graphic designer/illustrator and lives in a sweet spot, just 5-minutes from mine. Perfect.
Now. This is the part where I check my phone and see that Pam just emailed. She’s about to be profiled on this super cool website and would I mind writing a little paragraph about her?
Of course, I jumped at the chance because I:
(a) fancy myself to be a very accomplished wannabe writer, and
(b) would love to write something nice for someone nice.
Oh and since we’re talking, I’ve been thinking about starting this thing and how would she feel if I were to come over and take her portrait as well as some snaps around her home? Oh em gee, she was already thinking of asking me! Obviously there were plenty more exclamation marks in the ensuing rapid-fire exchange of emails but anyhow.
It was pretty cool.
Anyway, if you wanna see just one more reason why Toronto is Awesome, go on and check out their profile on my dear and talented friend Pam Lostracco.
