Cheen at the Park


Cheen wanted a portrait for her solo album that would encapsulate her impressions of Canada for friends and fans in Egypt. She chose the general location of the shoot (Burnaby’s Central Park) and I chose this particular setting next to the Lower Pond because of the array of fall colours still evident in the late-November background and the contrast between them and the subtle hints of snow suggested by her wardrobe.

Cheen has worked very hard to keep her multiple music projects active during her Canadian residency but despite her determination and focus in pursuit of those dreams, there is always a mischievous glint in her eye – like she could run off into the woods at any moment, to live with the squirrels – and this sense of levity is the intersection which all of her ambitions and motivations must cross en route to their destinations.
