#307 Tony Fouhse gets noticed in NYC

I just noticed (thanks Alexi) that one of Ottawa’s grittiest photographers recently got some good press in the New York Times.

¬†Tony Fouhse took on some personal work – it’s a long story revealed in the links below – shooting large portraits of people at a street corner in central Ottawa. That specific street corner sees many crack addicts pass by. Over time Tony¬† ended up with some very real portraits of an often shunned group of people. The portraits were shot with permission and collaboration.

I have seen some of his work at La Petite Mort. I think Tony gave his subjects respect and time – something they are often denied. Nice work Tony!
