Love was in the air this past Saturday in Toronto, and what film would be more appropriate to capture this special emotion than the Lomography Redscale?
Now, one must keep in mind that Toronto is not exactly the kind of city where couples can go for a special Valentines Day picnic or walk on the beach in mid-February—its just too damn cold! So we had to look for love in other places. First we garnished our Lomo-love with the former King of Kensington, Canadian actor Al Waxman, who has a statue in his honor in Bellevue Park, right in the center of Kensington Market. After our tantric experience with Toronto’s king we then emoted (using our cameras) all over the back alleys of Chinatown and the rooftops of U of T. The T-Dot has a lot of love to give; you just have to know the right exposure!

This article is a tribute to the street and humanist photographer Sabine Weiss. Considered a living legend in street photography, she likes to photograph daily lives of people, trying to capture the emotions she recognizes around her. Weiss like to photograph people of all ages but she especially loves to take photos of children, masterfully immortalizing their spontaneous gestures and emotions. For this article, I was inspired by one of her rare sports photos of some children practicing judo. Do you want to know more about this great artist? Well, read on!
