    Alumnus Tim Barber's ('03) photography has been selected as the cover for Elton John's upcoming album, The Diving Board, by none other than the man himself.

    Barber's work was introduced by a mutual photographer friend; John is an avid art collector, and is believed to have one of the largest private photography collections in the world.

    Says Barber, "Elton John phoned me himself, which was really a surreal moment. He introduced himself and asked me about the image and talked about the idea of using it for the cover."

    Douglas Coupland: everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything is the first major museum exhibition of the artist’s work and will be presented at the Vancouver Art Gallery from May 31 – September 1, 2014.

But the themes he explores in his writing have appeared in his artwork as early as the 1980s when he was a student at the Emily Carr College of Art & Design, (Class of '84).
