Photography is a passion of mine and I love to photograph food. When I shop at the farmers’ market, I have my eco grocery bag over one shoulder and my camera hangs around my neck. I walk through the crowded stalls as I shop for my groceries for the week. I squeeze past individuals riffling through fresh produce as I keep an eye out for food to photograph. When I find something that catches my eye, I try to get the shot as fast as I can without getting in the way.
Now that it is spring, I love to wander into my neighbours’ yards and capture the beauty of flowers. My neighbour Yolande Morin is well-known for her garden and even better known for her photography greeting cards that she sells around Vancouver at Choices Market on 16th Avenue and Banyen Books. Morin is among the few photographers who have not switched over to digital and she still uses 35mm film. She loves to take photos of her garden foremost and has a large collection of photos that she took in France, the Galapagos Islands and of other places that she has travelled.
Morin recently had the privilege of photographing the National Ballet of Cuba while they visited Vancouver in February. Morin will be showing a triptych of these photos at the Artists in our Midst Roundhouse Exhibit (181 Roundhouse Mews) on May 16, 2012 from 7-10pm. Artists in our Midst is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and on the weekend of May 19-21, 2012, you can browse through 36 artist-created galleries and venues on the west side of Vancouver.
