A snapshot of what to expect this year at the Capture Photography Festival

VANCOUVER — Beginning the day after April Fool’s, Vancouverites will be graced with the second annual Capture Photography Festival that, in itself, is far from foolish. Over the past three decades numerous conceptual movements have blossomed by use of lens based art and as Capture’s executive director, Kim Spencer-Nairn, elaborates, “Our goal is to build on that rich history by offering a program focused on inclusivity and accessibility, which engages a diverse audience with new works, new artists and new ways of thinking about photography.” Exceeding 100 exhibitions and events across 45 galleries, billboards, and Canada Line rail cars, the unmatched beauty of conceptualized photography will be prominently showcased throughout the month of April with post-festival events pushing into May. The public is invited to participate in technical workshops, artist talks and lectures, and film screenings in addition to viewing the various exhibits.

The exhibition titled Images that Speak kick starts the festival at the Satellite Gallery showcasing works by both local and international artists with the intent to push the limits of photography, sometimes at the cost of the photo’s legibility, depicting the artist’s varying views of realism. Images that Speak includes pieces by Michele Abeles, Shannon Ebner, Ryan Foerster, Susanne Kriemann, Steve McQueen, Arthur Ou, Ryan Peter, Eileen Quinlan, Matt Saunders, and Stephen Waddell. Beginning on April 2nd, Jessica Eaton’s creation of coloured photographs through the use of black and white film will be on display at the Dal Grauer Substation. This location was chosen because of the historical magnitude residing in its architectural structure, which can be referred to as a multidimensional canvas. Eaton will also be hosting a talk on the 7th for those more interested in her form of lens art. Another notable display, The Portrait Project, premiers on the 17th featuring a collection of photographs by Lindsay Elliott, Katie Huisman, Lynol Lui, Madhava Musterer, and Alex Waber at the Remington Gallery. Also premiering on April 17th is the Greg Girard: Richmond/Kowloon exhibit portraying the social and physical growth within the city of Richmond as well as Hong Kong’s Kowloon Walled City.

Though Capture events will only be taking place for a few weeks, many exhibitions will remain open throughout the spring. For those interested in expanding their cultural horizons, Capture is sure to deliver a unique experience. Expect this festival to take over the Metro Vancouver area, capturing the wondrous minds of many.

Capture Photography Festival runs April 2-29 across Vancouver.
