Photographer Caitlin Cronenberg’s body of work is diverse. From fashion shoots to TIFF and Cannes Film Festival photo diaries – for W Magazine and the New York Times, respectively – to the cover art for Drake’s 2016 album Views and the June Sky (Delta) cover featuring Justin Trudeau. Add to the list directing music videos and web content. She is currently working on her second book of photography, The Endings, which will be published in 2018. For her first Zoomer assignment, “A Woman’s Tale” (pg. 41), she captures the distinguished team behind the television adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s Alias Grace.
“Because the directors aren’t selling their films – they’re already classics – they’re more relaxed. So the interviews have been some of the funniest and frankest I’ve ever done,” says veteran entertainment journalist Johanna Schneller about her new CBC series The Filmmakers, on which she interviews directors and insiders about classic Canadian films. Over her career, she’s profiled a slew of A-listers for Vanity Fair, In Style and GQ, to name a few, and for Zoomer – the most recent being Jason Priestley for our special Canada 150 issue. For this issue, she goes behind the scenes with the women of Alias Grace.
