CITY OF ANGELS: Petra Collins for Rookie

To see the entire set, head over to Rookie
Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of shooting with one of my favourite Toronto-based photographers, Petra Collins, for one of my favourite online endeavours, Rookie Magazine, run by my teenage idol, Tavi Gevinson. Petra and I crossed paths back in October when I lurked in the…general vicinity…of the front-row at the Rookie reading at Indigo, and after exchanging a new messages, we decided to shoot along with new friends Jacqueline, Brittney and Sarah for Rookie’s December issue.

I realize my overuse of punctuation in the previous sentences may have sent your brain into a whirlwind of confusion and/or shock, but let me just take the time to reaffirm your suspicions that my own (brain) exploded multiple times whenever it was confronted and/or reminded with/about this Rookie-tacular situation. I’m so excited with the results of the shoot, Petra’s undeniable creative genius, and the fun GIFs that I can’t even explain with human words…

However, at the risk of going into full-out fangirl mode, I’ll let you come to your own conclusions about all of the above information, and take this opportunity to segue into new top secretive topics and…move on with my life.

    <3 I love Rookie! It's so awesome and I don't care if maybe a twenty year old "shouldn't" be looking through it because it's so good. Congrats on shoot; it's lovely!
