Suburban Tea

Editorial —  Film Director, 2018

As someone who is hard on himself and lives in his own mind. The city of Toronto was essential for my growth as an artist. However, it was not just the city as a standalone urban hub that influenced him, but the relationship the city has with the suburbs all around it. Suburban Tea aims to capture that sensation. The moments feel more intimate, time feels fleeting, curiosity forms desire. “Suburban Tea” is a moment in time where desire aligns with opportunity and creates harmony.

“The Lovers - Trust your intuition along with your rational intellect, and once you make your choice, carry it out with conviction… The card in the Advice position suggests a course of action which will harmonize what you want with what is currently possible.”
