Recently the City of Vaughan Archives celebrated the work of WILLIAM J. FARRAND FONDS “…one of our premier collections composed of mostly graphic material dating from the mid 1800s. It includes examples of the three earliest photographic processes – daguerreotypes, tintypes, and ambrotypes…

Based on Farrand’s early tintype of the Farrand children, my piece is titled “Aegis” (defined as protection/support) depicting parents protecting their child in embrace. This experimental print on aluminum is a modern take on original photographic processes (such as daguerreotypes, tintypes, and ambrotypes). It reminds people that there still is a desire for artists to represent reality through fine art photography even though it has never been easier or quicker to capture an image with Instagram, camera phones or the like.
