Picture of the Week, March 27, 2014

We had to slightly crop this Tim Matheson photo to fit our format (we try never to do that) but we wanted you to feel as much of the impact of it as we did. It is for Theatre at UBC's production of UBU Roi, Alfred Jarry's skewed masterpiece. Mr. Matheson has certainly captured the skew with actor Naomi Vogt. The technique Matheson uses - false shadow - seems simple but is no small thing and the shadow here is particularly good (read: hair-raising). And, yes, that is a toilet-brush in the King's hand.
