I’d heard about CONTACT, had even listened to a few stories, but had yet to visit this month long festival of photography until a few weeks ago when, thanks to Blurb, I boarded a jet airplane and headed to Ontario. Toronto is a very interesting place, a city that feels a little more European than you would imagine. Toronto seems organized, and yes everyone is nice. That stereotype of Canada is dead nuts on eh. There is public transport, great food, a burgeoning arts scene and most importantly they realize the power and sexiness of beer on tap. Seriously, this is HUGE. As for the festival, it was a great experience. First of all, the staff was fantastic. Big shout out to Tara who included me in all things CONTACT. We toured the city viewing public art, ate together and stopped at exhibition after exhibition. Watch the video below and hear my high-pitched nasally voice lead you on yet another photo-adventure. My advice, have a look at CONTACT and think about heading up to our neighbor to the north.
