This issue from Chiiz is dedicated to Street Photography. With Vineet Vohra as our guest editor, we have shared some amazing stories totally different from the mainstream concepts. The streets, they say, ain’t just for anybody. It’s true that we all roam about in those streets everyday, walking down the same lanes a hundred times and yet we don’t see what is right in front of us. As street photographers, we try to capture human engagement, as the moments unfold around us.
In this issue: Our podcast ramps up with interviews in March with fight director Jenny Parr, countertenor Daniel Taylor, and baritone Russell Braun; two views of composer John Beckwith at 90; how music’s connection to memory can assist with the care of patients with Alzheimer’s; musical celebrations in film and jazz, at National Canadian Film Day and Jazz Day; and a preview of Louis Riel, which opens this month at the COC. These and other stories, in our April 2017 issue of the magazine!
