Blue Hallway


February 8, 2006

Apart from yesterday's space tub, the only real objects left behind in St. Mary's Manor were beds. Lots of 'em. Unfortunately they were mostly in the hallways instead of the rooms.

Upcoming group show: Diane Purdie and I have 20 odd pieces on display (photographs & paintings/collage) at the Newmarket Theatre for the next month and a half. I think we're tentatively naming the show 'Memories from the Day Shift' — yeah, it's all industrial-related goodness. If you're not attending a performance at the theatre, you can stop by between 1 and 5:30 pm Mon-Fri, and between Noon and 4pm on Saturdays. If you're in the area, have a look! I've mostly got Bethlehem Steel photos on display as well as some older shots.

And, here's a map to the theatre.

The In Transit exhibition at the Toronto Free Gallery is still up and running (a little closer to home for you Toronto folk).

Its so clear I had to look at it a while before knowing if you were shooting through safety glass or just a fence barrier.

It really is a great shot Kendall. On a personal note nursing homes really are sad sad places....those blue walls really add to the gloom. You certainly captured the essence of it all. Good job.

too bad our struggling hospitals and shelters can't use any of the beds and equipment left to rot in these places... makes you wonder...?
