Steven Zytveld of the Dusty Owl Reading Series Ottawa
This one is photoshopped, of course. Steven was watching one of the Peter F. Yacht Club poets from the top stair of the Carleton Tavern (Dec. 17, 2005) when I shot this candid photo. He struck a 'saintly' pose (I thought) and all I did was apply the dodge tool a wee bit about his noggin. The photo also underwent a heavy noise reduction process and also a 'craquelure' layer to make the whole thing painterly and postmodern iconic. Steve, along with his wife Catherine (and the Dusty Owl team) organized a food drive December 18, 2005 to benefit the Ottawa Food Bank... a saintly gesture in my books.
