On Hornby Island for the past forty years Bob Cain has been recording the faces, activities and lives of his fellow islanders. This seemingly lifetime project has enabled him to document historically the changes a small island has gone through. He has done a number of photographic shows on this subject and pictures have been published in various venues over the years. His ultimate goal for this project would be a book; if only he could pick a cutoff date. See his wonderful collection of images at:Bob Cain Photography


Pam Windo knew avant-garde saxophone player Gary Windo from their first schooldays in Brighton, England.  Many years later, after he’d been around the world as a merchant seaman and she‘d lived in Europe and North Africa, they met up again.  It was 1969.  Gary had paid his dues in New York City’s jazz clubs and set his sights on rousing the British music scene. Pam took up piano and found herself with Gary alongside musicians like Soft Machine’s Robert Wyatt, Brotherhood of Breath’s Louis Moholo, and Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason. When Gary got a residency with The Carla Bley Band in the United States, the couple immigrated to Woodstock. When Gary passed away in 1992 at the age of 50, Pam bowed out of the music business. She has now published a memoir of those days. Him through Me is a portrait and a love story, and a celebration of the energy and innocence of the late Sixties and Seventies.  www.pamwindo.com
