The innovative core of the Good Women Dance Collective perform Distaff at the Expanse Movement Arts Festival. When my son decides to allow it, I have been working through the edit of all the great images I had the fortune of capturing at this years festival. While working this morning, I discovered this rather compelling portrait from their Expanse set.
In 1994 my then-girlfriend handed me a pamphlet for the Photography and Darkroom program at the University of Alberta Faculty of Extension. She just handed me the pamphlet and gave me a look without uttering a word. A year later this happened and I began to think of myself as something more than a wayward restaurant manager with a rather fat BA. The image is of my friend Linda and daughter Astrid.
