Connolly's Portrait

Thanks to Kevin Connolly's friends and colleagues who suggested that they liked my photo of him so much, he chose my photo to be used for promotional purposes. This candid photo was snapped while he was on stage at the Ottawa International Writers Festival this past spring.

[from The Scream Literay Festival: Kevin Connolly’s most recent collection, drift (Anansi, 2005), won the 2006 Trillium Award for poetry. His previous poetry collections include Happyland (ECW 2002) and Asphalt Cigar (Coach House, 1995), which was nominated for the 1996 Gerald Lampert Award. He was founding editor of the influential 1980s literary magazine What!. Connolly lives in Toronto, where he works as a poet, editor, and arts journalist. ]

It's an amazing photo. I'm not surprised it would serve for promo purposes.
