As a part of NXNE Art 2014, artists from the Northeast shifted the narrative of Toronto’s streets, creating destinations of beauty. Take a peek at some of the images below and see how Toronto has been transformed…and then go check out the rest on foot! Pictures, as good as they are, just don’t do the art justice. Here’s tour #1.
Cory VanderPloeg’s Mom, Kids, Body Art exhibition, sponsored by 3M, was featured in the Globe and Mail. The article mentioned that body art would “finally get its time in the spotlight…[as the exhibit depicts] moms who do not conform with the typical images of moms seen in ads.” The exhibit aims to assert a look at today’s mom, as “younger mothers…[as the article notes], do not feel advertising reflects a real image of their families’ lives.” The Globe and Mail delivers lively and authoritative coverage of national, international, business, technology, arts, entertainment and lifestyle news, attracting a six-day readership total of 2.4 million–making it the most read newspaper in Canada.
As a part of the NXNE festival, NXNE Art gives people the power to participate – not simply spectate. NXNE Art 2014 brings together influential creators of the North East who are transforming their surroundings and the urban experience. This year, throughout the festival landscape, we invite you to enter an artist’s view of city life in a future age where creativity reigns. Continue reading article →

Resident artist at Hermann & Audrey, Cory Vanderploeg, had the chance to shoot Canadian band, Down With Webster, this past summer. One might describe their sound as hip-hop with a hint of Electro-Alternative, with a kick ass rock band delivery. Down With Webster has earned the respect of, and both shared the stage with, and performed with, LMFAO, Timbaland, Ludacris, ‘Lil Jon, 3oh3 and even KISS. Continue reading article →

The screening room of Ian Schrager’s Public Chicago played host to the art and film of Cory Vanderploeg on December 18th. Many thanks to our hosts, and those who joined us for Hermann & Audrey’s first use of the hotel to mount an exhibit. The evening included screenings of fashion films A House No More and Zoe.trope against an installation of COLOSSAL, Vanderploeg’s 2013 World Mastercard Fashion Week print exhibit in collaboration with designer Laura Siegel.
I had this idea a while back to shoot a fashion creative and combine the images together later in post production to create a collage effect. This is something I put a lot of thought into and really didn’t know how the story would turn out until after the all of the post production and laying out was finished.
Where credit is due. Congratulations to Javier Lovera, Cory Vanderploeg and the associated members of the Hermann & Audrey production team in receiving the honour of an international finalist with IUFF based in Milan.Along with 30 0ther finalists, A House No More, a film originally debuted with Bullett Magazine, was screened for one week in the two main city squares in Milan, at the Milan Fair and for two days in Teatro Franco Parenti during Milan Fashion Week.
On our 3rd anniversary, Hermann & Audrey put together a story of Light and Love.
Dedicated to the City of Toronto.

Since I have been shooting with professionals (models, makeup artists, and stylists) for creatives I have always created a ‘pre-production package’ for my shoots. I think its a great way to get your ideas into something a bit more manageable and it allows you and your crew to get on the same page.
