It’s been a long time coming, it’s a little late arriving (in time, that is, for the 30th anniversary of the event), and I’ve been even slower to announce it, but here it is:

Three Thousand and Thirteen front cover

Three Thousand and Thirteen is a 7×7 hard cover (with glossy dust jacket!), full colour photo book.

Artist Erin Clarke revisits various sites of the 1981 Toronto Bath House Riots, retracing the path of her involvement and weaving a personal narrative with the unfolding of this momentous event in Canadian sexual politics.

“Erin Clarke’s photography is sharp and playful, and the accompanying text – a kind of prosetry – defies clear categorization. Clarke is thoughtful and brave in her excavation of personal and public queer histories. ‘Three Thousand and Thirteen’ shows art and imagination as integral parts of a larger movement towards personal and political liberation.”

Elizabeth Ruth, author of Smoke

In just over two days I’ll be boarding a plane for Costa Rica. I’ve checked off many an item on my To Do list, but a few things have been added and there’s still more to get done. Among other things, I tested the boom kit rented from Viztek and the Roland R-44 portable field recorder. On Tuesday I bought a new battery and RAM for my laptop. Today I also picked myself up a new 8GB USB flash drive and 4GB SD card for my still camera (a Pentax K10D that I’m bringing to shoot production stills with when I get a chance). I’m glad I’ll have a week before the actors arrive in which to further familiarize myself with new tools (while recording a breadth of specific location sounds).
