Rosie and the Riveters are four talented women from Saskatoon who perform 40’s style folk music. While in Toronto for the annual folk awards they decided to perform at an afternoon matinee at Hugh’s Room. They are inspired by Rosie the Riveter, the feminist icon who represents the women’s movement into the workforce during WWII and embodies the strength and power that thrive in every woman. They are Alexis Normand, Allyson Reigh, Melissa Nygren, and Farideh Olsen.

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
