I was approached by Joseph Boyden at the beginning of the "Man Machine Poem" tour about a piece that he and his wife, Amanda were writing for MacLean's Magazine about The Tragically Hip. Joseph wanted to use my photograph's to accompany the article.
The article appeared on the cover of MacLean's September 12, 2016 issue and was titled "The Tragically Hip - How Five Guys from kingston brought a nation to its feet - the wrenching final tour of Canada's band".
There is a web piece that accompanies the article called "Joseph Boyden’s seven love songs for Gord Downie" that has more images in it. View it at the bottom of the page here.
This image was one of the ones that got into print.

am currently have recently come back from working on the Man Machine Poem Tour for The Tragically Hip and Insight Productions shooting video and stills.
If you live in Canada, you might have been one of the 11.7 million Canadians who tuned into watch (I think it is way more when you take into account viewing parties and group viewing experiences) The Tragically Hip: A National Celebration. Turned out, this little concert was the second most watched event in Canadian TV History. I got three credits on the show. Second Unit Producer/Director, Webmaster and Live Photography.
I am please to announce that I have a number of The Tragically Hip Photos on display at Noodle Gallery in Caledon throughout the summer. Part of a larger exhibition that I am planning and starting to build. If you are in the area, drop by, say hello to Monica and check out the work of Sue Holland and Matthew Cassidy.
The summer solstice is almost upon us and school days are coming to an end. Everyone loves the lazy hazy dayz of summer! Anything more exciting than that? Just one - exhibition changeover time at Noodle Gallery! And this one is a doozy. Featuring the dynamic works of three fabulous artists David Bastedo Photography, Sue Holland and Matthew Cassidy of Fragmented Frames.
David's passion for music has enabled him to travel across North America and Europe documenting and creating content for Canadian bands such as The Tragically Hip, The Trews, Sam Roberts Band, Paul Langlois and Gord Downie.
Sue's passion for photography, her work and travel experiences have lead to stunning images taken globally; ranging from various cultural events to interesting architecture and beautiful landscapes.
Artist Matthew Cassidy started by taking apart an old broken camera to see what was inside. Realizing how unique, interesting and beautiful the pieces were he meticulously placed them within a frame giving something broken new life.
Beats n' Pieces runs for the whole summer from Friday, June 24th to Monday, Sept. 5th. Mark your calendars - you won't want to miss this one!
