WHO: Philip Barbosa, fine art, wedding and portrait photographer, member of Carnival Diablo and iWasCured
WHERE: College and Bathurst WHEN: Saturday morning
CLOTHING: "My Terminator Ray-Ban sunglasses were a gift from a family member overseas. My Hung T-shirt ($20) is from an event I co-hosted a couple of years back called the Toronto Suspension Convention; WePrintGoodShirts.com made it. My shorts were $25 bucks from Winners (57 Spadina, 416-585-2052). They dry quickly, are light and have a lot of pockets - perfect! My gloves ($10) and cycling leg armour ($85) came from Duke's Cycle (625 Queen West, 416-504-6138) and function as a little extra padding for when I lack a sense of self-preservation. I purchased my shoes ($30) at the Toronto International Bike Show; I like to think the flamed shoes make me that much faster when I'm riding across the city on my 29-er unicycle - no brakes, no gears, just power and balance. I got it from BedfordUnicycles.ca ($400.) I hope it's a positive distraction during the morning commute, or at least an opportunity for the 905s to yell, "Yo, buddy, you know you lost a wheel?" A diamond-and-stainless-steel ring from my very best friend in the world - Jen - is my most prized possession. She gave it to me when she asked me to marry her. My tattoos are by Scott McEwen from TCB Tattoo Parlour (618 Queen West, 416-203-1615). My piercings are by Tom Brazda (TomBrazda.com). And my scars are courtesy of both my sense of adventure and Blair (byBlair.com)."
MY STYLE: "Utilitarian and a little bit squeegee kid."
INTO: "Unicycling, photographing unique and extraordinary people and flesh-hook body suspension. My Contact photo festival show at Elevator Gallery documented the ritual fusion of flesh and metal, gravity and psychology. The show has been moved to Studio123 in St. Catharines, where it runs until the end of July."
