Jana and Francko

On October 30th, 2013, I met with a friend of mine, model Francko Edge. He introduced me to his closest friend and model Jana Dickinson, who looks like she should be in the audience of the Village Vanguard in 1958. Together, they look like they should be in the audience at Gerde's Folk City in 1961, waiting for John Lee Hooker and Bob Dylan. I love anachronistes.

Bôhten Sunglasses

Bôhten sunglasses are spectacularly lovely sunglasses, the frames made out of wood. The frames are made in Africa. The company is a labour of love, developed and managed by King Osei, a dear friend of mine. Check out their website. There are many fine frames offered. King and I went on the street and photographed people wearing these remarkable sunglasses.
Gina Ree, photographer, media artist and good friend. 
I met her in front of Planet Coffee in downtown Ottawa.
She is a fascinating person who photographs circuses,
carnivals and burlesque. Check her website. You'll be
glad you did! 

Vincent Morrisette, stand up comic and a man with a truly good sense of dress. 

Even zombies like the glasses. King and I calmed down one 
with a pair of Bôhtens. Because of this, he had extra hours 
in the sunlight. 
See for more chills.

Francko Edge. Model, director, producer, friend.

The indescribably beautiful Victoria van Eyk.

Yours truly, photographed by King Osei.

Also, check out Kate Forrest's blog Suits and Stilettos. Kate is a great interviewer and art director and I always enjoy working with and for her.

As always, Ayesha looks ten times cooler than any other human.
