When Leah Denbok was 12 years old, she saved enough money to buy a DSLR camera. She idolized Lee Jeffries, a British photographer who shot portraits of homeless people in London, so her father, Tim, suggested she do a similar series in Toronto. Now 17, Leah and her dad have travelled from their home in Cambridge to Toronto, New York and other cities in Ontario, capturing stunning, humanizing portraits of people living on the street.
This is not the first time Kent has woven a tale around a historical crime case — her multiple award-winning debut novel Burial Rites follows a woman condemned to death for murdering two men in Iceland 1829. It was during this research that the Australia-based writer found the case that forms the foundation of this next novel — she later spent time in Ireland to immerse herself in the culture.
This Toronto artist’s wonderfully peculiar portraits are unlike anything you’ve ever seenThis Toronto artist’s wonderfully peculiar portraits are unlike anything you’ve ever seenStephen Appleby-Barr paints characters that lend themselves to grand tales: regal human-animal hybrids, people he knows reimagined as mythical creatures, royals from years past. For the creations in his latest exhibition of oil paintings, Corvidae, he imagined one fable to unite them all.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
