Mayor Gives Nelly Disposable Camera

2005_01_07nelly.gifFor the next few weeks a handful of local personalities will be photographing the city as they know and love it for a project organized by Mayor Miller and his minions. My Life, My City will see everyone from Nelly Furtado to Susur Lee to Ben Mulroney (ugh!) playing amateur photographer, and playing fast and loose with our urban affection. Sayeth the release, “This photography exhibit takes viewers behind the
scenes to reveal a typical day in the life of these Torontonians
.” While we’re tepidly curious to know what a day in the life of Michael Ondaatje is like, for the aforementioned Mulroney, we need no picture to tell us a thousand words (9 AM: Place hair gel on hair, rub vaseline on teeth.) Enough said.
The photos will be exhibited beginning January 28th at the City Hall Rotunda.
