Toronto photographer Pam Lau has got a serious case of the blues—and we couldn’t be happier for her.
Her ongoing photo series bbblue (which you can follow on Instagram) takes us on a colourful, albeit hue-specific, tour of the city by matching styled photo shoots to their corresponding Pantone surroundings—all of which she then captures on film. This self-initiated project will be culminating in November with the launch of a photobook of the same name. Stay tuned for more launch party details, to be hosted at the Black Cat Artspace in Roncesvalles.
In anticipation of the book launch, we wanted to share some of our favourite shots from the series as paired with some of our favourite local spots. Moving from bold turquoises to whispers of periwinkle, and from Leslieville to Parkdale, Pam’s photos seamlessly navigate both Toronto and the colour wheel.
