For last semester’s photojournalism class, I was tasked to complete a photo essay on an event or someone in my community. There were a few ideas floating around in my mind but eventually, I decided to do my essay on Kim Bialkoski. Thankfully she entertained this project and was very accommodating throughout the process.
Kim and I initially met at a Satanic Rights show in 2016, and what stuck with me was her positive attitude, friendliness, and passion for DIY. I found it incredibly cool that she operates her own food preservation company, flora & farmer, and I’ve had the utmost respect for her hard work and dedication to her business and her customers.
This past Friday, Cory Thomas of Ninjacat Productions hosted a benefit show for Manitoba Metalfest at The Park Theatre. It featured five local bands, and included the debut of his newest thrash metal band INFECTER. Members include Veronica Sears (vocals), David Jones (guitar), Lee Shodine (guitar & backup vocals), Jennifer Norris Wuckert (bass & backup vocals), and Thomas (drums).
