Lutz Dille mural at CAMERA

Gorgeous mural

From another angle!

Close up
I love the look of the woman
She is the just the kind of gal woman I love drawing
And what a great coat!

As you can see this photograph is in the MOMA now

My favorite thing to look at in the city right now is the gorgeous photograph blown up outside CAMERA at 1028 Queen Street West. The photo entitled Young Couple looking at Slides was taken in 1959 in NYC by Lutz Dille.
The Stephen Bulger gallery next door installed it to commemorate the work of the German born photographer who lived in Toronto from 1951 to 1980. It is such a gorgeous installation and the black + white image looks so great combined with the wooden window frame of the building and CAMERA's great lettering. I kinda hope they keep it up forever.

ps. Stephen Bulger is offering free Saturday movies this summer in conjunction with it's current show: Fading Dream: The work of William Eakin.
Beautiful interiors + air conditioning + free movie = GO.
