one of the exhibitions in this month's CONTACT photography festival showcases 50 toronto-based emerging artists (will i ever actually emerge? it's been almost 10 yrs for god's sake). i'm one of these, and my face is actually in the photo-i know hard to believe as, well, being a vampire and all, it's next to impossible to capture. the show is put on by blogto, photos by Istoica (ie: Jess and Chris who did my shoot - very sweet and professional, and impossibly cute), Sam Javanrouh and Rannie Turingan, and you can check it out at the very cool parkdale gallery called Barbershop. photos from opening at the Barbershop blog here. exhibition runs until may 31.
