October Crisis...

'The October Crisis' was a major historical moment in Canada. Kidnapping, explosions, murder, and just general mayhem seemed to characterize the event. I tried an extremely different methodology in executing these images, with results that I am very pleased with. The first image details the 'bandit' persona PM Pierre Trudeau used to identify the FLQ. The second is the Canadian military occupying the streets of Montreal (still needs some indication of location). The Third is Trudeau's famous 'Just Watch Me' interview. The Trudeau piece is my favorite, but the most positive feedback I received was for the first and second images. I really like the direction this set is taking me.
