sharing the love

As many of you know I've been working on a self initiated project called loveOttawa. This project is pretty simple and very positive - I'm just asking people to let me photograph them in front of my square white canvas and then tell me what they love about Ottawa. Simple enough. The interesting thing that I'm now better realizing is that I'm apart of a social change movement in Ottawa, a quiet movement to help our city feel more positive. I know it might sound a little la-di-da - maybe it is. But I believe if a city feels more positive about itself it makes it a better place to live and work. Ottawa has gone way too long feeling it's a boring government town, because it's way better than that. It's a beautiful city, an innovative city, a cultural city, an architecturally and historically rich city - and more importantly it's a city full of people who care about each other! :)

If you'd like more information about the loveOttawa project and/or you'd like to participate, please send me an email at And please follow the project on twitter at @love_ottawa
