November & December 2018
Main Lounge: Blaise Enright
Blaise Enright studied photography, film and creative writing at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto. In 1997 a photo-documentary project with co-creator Barry Peterson became a touring exhibition called “Lit Happens”; in 2012 it became a book published by Mother Tongue Press titled 111 West Coast Literary Portraits.
Blaise continues to engage in photography projects, the latest one being Lee Reid’s book project titled Growing Together, Conversations with Seniors and Youth; a selection of photographs from the book are displayed November through December. Growing Together, which launches at the Library on Thursday, November 15 at 7pm, contains conversations between seniors and LV Rogers Grade 11 students on topics that included loneliness, depression, climate change, gender oppression, the “Me Too” movement, old and young love, and hopes for the future, with Blaise’s photographs throughout.
