Big Chuck and I are bound for Toronto this weekend, we're having a little pre-birthday celebration with my family. The real deal isn't until Tuesday, but I'm the kind of gal who subscribes to a birthday week, especially for one this monumental!! While we're scrambling to pack up all essentials, I thought I would leave you with this inspiring photography project...
The Makers Project by photographer Jennifer Causey is a project documenting the people in her city of Brooklyn, NY, who make handmade and artisan products. She captures the people behind the products, often hard at work in their studios or kitchens, finding out what makes them tick, inspires and keeps them going. Her photos are beautiful and her passion for the project palpable. It was so hard to select only a few images to share with you here on my blog, so I highly recommend you visit the project's site to see the complete stories and photos.
After seeing all the talented artists at the Puces Pop show last weekend, this is a project I think would be just as successful here in Montreal as it is in Brooklyn. Maybe we could woo Jennifer north of the boarder?!
Have a wonderful weekend!
