Art by Two {painting, photography, print}

Collaboration is a Beautiful Thing

 

These go back a few years, to when I was putting together a collection of street photography for Toronto’s Contact Photogrpahy festival. Brilliant artist and printmaker Shawn Reynar generously offered to print my photos on special paper, and as we sat in front of piles of both of our work, we started playing around on the computer, combining our various outputs in new and fascinating ways, adding things as we went.

I liken this process to that of spontaneous writing, which I’ve been practicing for many years and which always yields magical surprises.

There is such  joy in this kind of discovery! These were the result of our efforts.

We called this series-of-two: Dreams of a City I’ve Never Been To.

You can also find these images on Shawn’s website, here. Please take a moment to check out the rest of Shawn’s work featured on his site. He’s a master, an artist down to the very fabric of his being, and his works move me right to the core.
