This past Friday I had the opportunity to photograph this years Urban Infill which is hosted by Definitely Superior Art Gallery. This was the 11th year that it took place, but the first time I attended. I don't know how I have gone this many years without checking out but at least I made out this time around. After attending this years event, I will be definitely be going to next years.
For those of you who have never attended before, it's a great opportunity to go see all the great local talent in Thunder Bay. So many business in downtown Port Arthur opened their doors and allowed a wide variety of artists and performers show their work. It was amazing to see everything and everyone come together to support the local art scene. I was thoroughly impressed with just how much raw talent there is out there in the city.
Even though I was photographing the event for Definitely Superior, I was still able to take it all in. My wife Anne kept me company throughout the evening and even she had a good time. As a photographer, my goal was to capture the essence of the event, which included the people and of course some of the art and just the overall mood.
I am very much looking forward to photographing next years event and seeing everyone come out again to support such a great cause.
