The beauty of shinny
December 22, 2017 Robert McLeman
Photographer Brant Slomovic has an unmatched eye for capturing the joy and beauty of a game of shinny hockey on a frosty winter day. Listen as he tells Robert about his art, The Shinny Project, and the cultural importance of the outdoor rink. Then, minor hockey coach and backyard rinkmaker Ian Williams describes how playing on outdoor rinks helps kids develop their hockey skills, and reflects on his own childhood shinny games. This episode also contains an audio postcard from the 100th anniversary outdoor game between Ottawa and Montreal, with Robert chatting shinny with friend Pierre Leblanc in the stands during the first intermission.
