With promises of BBQ and poutine to celebrate its seventh anniversary, we sent photographer Michael Bakouch out to check out the pre-show garage sale at new media and interdisciplinary art centre Eastern Bloc. The offerings included books and electronic objects (of course), but also DIY electronic kits to make your own synths and prints from UK /Japan-based artist Ally Mobbs’ installation “Turntabilism for the hard of hearing.” The night promised music with DJ sets by Mathématique, Bataille Solaire, Karneef, Country, and visuals by Aziz Light Crew.

About Michael Bakouch

I'm Michaël, a photographer focused on people in different places. The streets are my medium. So what is "street photography?" Street Photography is an art. It communicates the human condition in public places, within or without urban environments. The presence of the street is not necessary. Its people and or objects can be absent. The environment in which the image is projects the essence of human character. You will discover through my lens how I capture a city, its people and moments. A picture speaks a thousand words Its reality is untouchable, transparent and invisible to our fixed and restrictive fields of vision. (Michaël Bakouch) Contact: Website | More Posts
