Ezra Soiferman becomes first Tweed Artist in Residence and releases "The Walls of Montreal"

Thu 18 Aug, 2016 - Member News

Montreal documentary filmmaker and street photographer Ezra Soiferman ("Man of Grease", "Grass Fed”, “Last Game at The Forum”) has been selected as the first Artist in Residence at Tweed (http://www.Tweed.com), Canada's largest licensed medical cannabis producer.

As part of the year-long photography residency he'll be creating new photo series and ‘music photeos’. "The Walls of Montreal”, is the first project Ezra released as part of the Tweed residency.

Between 2013 and 2016, Ezra photographed over 1500 murals throughout the streets and alleys of Montreal. The project was inspired by his young daughter's fascination with the colourful murals they discovered together on their everyday adventures in their neighbourhood (NDG) and throughout the city.
