Shan ‘Finn leaves town (NSFW)’
Shan & Finn Blackmore reunite for an awesome new series.
“The first time Finn & I worked together was at the start of the year when I was still new in Toronto & winter was still in full effect. We were walking & brainstorming ideas for our shoot & we came across a mostly abandoned rail yard close to one of the popular recreational trails here in Downtown Toronto. But since it was too cold, we decided to revisit it sometime else & chose to shoot indoors instead. It resulted in what is still one of my favourite conceptual portrait series I’ve done to date.
Fast-forward to August, It’s summer & the spot had transformed into a mini-forest right in the city, Finn was to move to Montreal by the end of the month & it was our chance to revisit the same spot & we stretched our creative legs giving rise to yet another fantastic series shot on film (both medium format & 35mm) & digital.”
