"You may remember about two years ago us came out three years ago that was the album cover, you might remember. It was like tiny, Drake. Perched up on the top of the tower in Toronto and means started popping up everywhere and people were photo shopping tiny Drake into very strange situations. Caitlyn took that original photo and all of the photos for that Drake record. And it's easy to see why. Because Caitlin Kronoberg is an award winning photographer and director she's been published all over the world. So many big names have have used her photography towards plenty Donna clever. Megan Markle, they've all been on the other side of her lens. And now live in studio. Caitlyn Kronenbourg joins me to talk about it. Hi, I wanna talk about everyone you've worked with. But I wanna start with a quote that's on the gallery wall at your new exhibition. Can you read it efforts? Can you? So my new show is opening tomorrow at Coldstream fine art, which is at on Steiner. And it's Toronto. The quote is Walter pater. Which is that says, it is the addition of strangeness to beauty the constitutes the romantic character in art. It really struck me because it was talking about essentially, the fact that in order to create something truly beautiful there needs to be something off about it like an element of strangeness. And I didn't realize that the time that that's exactly what I have always strived to do in my work without even knowing it necessarily consciously, I love beautiful things, you know. That's what I aspire to make beautiful work. But I always feel that something needs to be to set it off a little bit off its axes. So that it's not what you're expecting to see in order for it to be one in order for it to be the beauty that I wanna see. Right. And so the beauty that I wanna present to the world is not the average ideal of beauty. It's something that has a little bit of something extra to it. So what I read this, quote, which is not a recent quote, it really kind of knocked me back. And I was like, oh, this is actually what I'm trying to do a good feeling that summarizes your own feeling thought, you were alone with totally. I have to name the show after this as it's called strange beauty because of this thinking like all of the images at the show really have that added element of something sort of surreal or something a little bit off kilter. What kind of conversations then do you have with these people? Who are? I mean, in some cases, these these people I'm thinking like George Clooney, Natalie Portman, Donald Glover, these are people who are used to being photographed and potentially like the most typically flattering way possible. What kind of conversations do you have a lot of the people that I've shot that you've mentioned were shoots at tiff. You know, have a portrait studio every year at tiff so people come in. And I usually have about five to ten minutes. This is the Toronto film fest. So I like to you know, just sort of say anything to them to get them to trust me within the first ten seconds of meeting me. So that they know that I'm planning to take a good picture of them. But in those moments when I don't really have the time to draw out into whole shoe. I really liked to just see if I can capture something that's innate in them like their personality coming out in a less posed less expected way so vulnerable ability. But if they're not feeling vulnerable than power or confidence or really anything that they're choosing to show me at that moment. What do you say just a human? It'd be human to them. I say how are you? How's your day like, you know, instead of saying standard over there and look at me and do this. I try to just make sure that they know that I recognize them as human too. And I want them to feel comfortable with me as a human. It's it's a big part of that interaction with your subjects. So I like them to know that I'm recognizing them as who they are. And not your subject for me to shoot. Also, her the truth. Like sometimes you'll you'll create fictional backstories for the people you're working with in the work, generally. And this was a style that I kind of honed with my book the endings that came out last year with my partner, just Ennis. So we put this book out and every woman that we shot for that book is an actor. And for each story, we created a backstory, so then they had a character that they can really body. And then in in my work that I'm doing, you know, for magazines or even for an album, cover anything. If the subject is willing to get into that. With me, I love to give them someone to play specially when they're an actor because that's what actors thrive on is that creativity in that collaboration. So I find that that really helps. And it's it's been a successful tool for me when you take your kids sometimes. That's been great at the film festival. He's a real icebreaker, especially when he's throwing total. His name is wolf e how he's three that'll that'll take care of things. Yeah. It's great. Kevin kronenbourg. I hope you don't mind that I mentioned so your best known work when when I was talking about that photo of Drake for his views album covered little Drake on top of the tower. I wanna talk a little bit about that. He was such a such a big deal, especially in Toronto. But I think for all candidate to what are the idea for that come from his team? Here's a great creative team. Obviously. It's no surprise anybody's done. Pretty good. He's he's doing all right. Nice Toronto doing okay. But no his team came to me. And they had this presentation of ideas. And you know, they kind of sent me this PDF. And I said, okay, there about eleven twelve ideas in here, which one do you wanna do and they said all of them? I said oh. Let's do all of them then. And then we mobilized, and you know, my my production team got to work and their teams out to work. And we just we knocked it out in three days. And we did I don't know like eight different setups full set bills and everything I'm going to say something that's gonna make the listening audience go. Yeah. Yeah. Tom, of course. But he wasn't on top of the tower with his legs dangling down. I think it's been long enough that I can say that that is true at the time. You know, we were trying to keep that that alive. But I think at this point enough people have done the math to know that he's not actually to scale also called the tower and said, you wouldn't let someone actually do that. Actually, I believe someone at least tweeted like I called them. And they said that he wasn't actually out there. People will go to great lengths to prove or disprove things. How did you do that when I shot this tower and then a shot him? Studio. See, I know this may be like me. I don't know. This is all still amazing to me, you know. Yeah. Studio looking cold. We're you surprised by the reaction to that. There. I actually was very surprised because I'm you know, I'm this Toronto photographer. I know he's he's like to me a Toronto musician. Of course, I know he has worldwide, you know, the scale that I can't understand because you can't understand it when you're just hanging out in the same city that you've always been hanging out. And when that image started going viral, I was shot at the response, and how many people were reaching out to me and asking me all of these questions like was he really out there. Really? Yeah. I don't know. No comment or question. Yeah. Lead helicopter. Helicopter or anything for a dare devil. Ask. I I don't know why we both Mark Wahlberg. Now when we're telling the story outside. He was I couldn't believe it. The robot? Power. I guess today is winning photographer director Caitlyn Cronin bird. And I'm guessing we'll never book Mark Wahlberg has a new collection of her photos opening as part of the Scotiabank contact photography festival in Toronto. It's called strange beauty. Caitlyn? We haven't talked about this yet. But I think some of our listeners will probably recognize your last name, you're the you're the daughter of legendary Canadian director, David Cronenberg. This is true. Did you glad we settle? Thank you for coming in. I can't help. But make a connection between someone who works with cameras and someone who works with cameras. Did you always want to be photographer? Actually. No. I wanted to be a pastry. Chef. Yeah. Wanted to be in cats like a cat in cats. Oh play yet. Okay. Until he realized I'm totally too shy to ever perform. And don't have a great singing voice and don't want to be a cat. So I went to last part is the most important. I mean, it was a bit key. Yeah. I went to school at Ryerson. I got my degree in fashion design, and I just sort of switch gears, and you know, my dad had a lot of cameras, and he was very fascinated with the the switch from film to digital. So we had a lot of that technology around that I could play with and not really kind of gave me the opportunity to go out and say, okay, I'm gonna play with this camera and see what happens, and I really loved it in a loved that could be collaborative and it can be a solo mission. And you can kind of do whatever inspires you at the moment that it inspires, you two more questions on that one is do you think learn anything from him that made away into your autocracy? I mean, he taught me how to use digital cameras when they first came out because he's the kind of person who sit down and read the manual from front to back, and I'm the kind of person who will read two pages of a manual and cry throat across the room because I just don't understand the technical lingo. But I can understand by being taught. And that's how I do everything on feel. So he taught me how to use the cameras, and I've just grown up around around art and the ability to create art and not being an option for your life. And so I think that's the most inspiring thing is like I knew that I could create art in that could be what I do for living. Just the the work ethic that surrounds having to be an artist. Absolutely. I mean, my dad, you know, he worked and worked and fought and fought to make the movies. He wanted to make without compromising his vision and not necessarily as everything that I'm doing as you know controversial as what he wanted to do. But knowing that he stood up for what he believed in. He wouldn't compromise on his art. He would go to work everyday loving what he did. And even coming home, you know, six AM when he had Nick Knight shoots, and I would just be going to school, and I wouldn't see him for a couple of weeks or months when he was shooting. But he was so happy all the time and just like feel. So validated and so satisfied by what he was doing. And I said, you know, what I wanted to do with my life. I wanna feel like the thing that I'm doing everyday is something that fills me with joy and pride. I want to go back to the of strangeness and beauty because it reminds me of a conversation. I had yesterday with Irene Taylor Brodsky who brought this documentary too hot docs, about her child who is deaf. He he he started experiencing hearing loss of the year and a half into his life and her she comes from deaf. Parents she's hearing parents deaf. And she said, what her film was was an exploration of how we treat perfection. The idea. That perfection is something that's kind of presented to us as an ideal. But it's not often what we get and the more. We are accepting of things that are outside of societies deem perfection. The happier will be and I couldn't help when I was looking at your photos to think about that. Whether that not that I would ever accuse you making any kind of statement because I think that's probably a little presumptuous any artists like what are you trying to say about? But I can't help it gets on your mind when you present strangeness and beauty as view..
