Calvin Trillin

New Yorker writer Calvin Trillin is one serious dude.

I had the chance to photograph him at swanky Toronto restaurant Canoe today. I'm not entirely sure what it is, but he's got some sort of intense-chessplayer-Winston-Churchill-elder-statesman vibe going on. Strange, considering he's moderating a panel discussion on the subject of poutine at U of T tonight.

For the record, he told me that he doesn't have a position on poutine.

Oh yeah, and the staff at Canoe were awesome. I expected them to be stuffy and not particularly helpful since I wasn't wearing a business suit, but they were gracious hosts for the shoot. Maybe I'll blow today's paycheque on dinner there.
