Beautiful, complicated, progressive Vancouver.
I’ve been drawn to these huge and imposing giants from afar. When I first photographed them on the water and experienced their truly awesome size, I knew I would have many more sessions with my camera. By bringing these images up close to viewers, another point of view is considered – would we tolerate such huge transport vehicles through our city streets?
If these photos are chosen by popular vote, they’ll appear in very large scale at the King Edward Skytrain Station in Vancouver, Canada. I’ll be on-site 1 day each month with them, to ask transit users what they see in the photos, in this urban environment, and in all of the modes of transit linked to Vancouver’s SkyTrain. I’ll ask people to consider evidence they’ve seen of human impact on the land, water and air (the “Anthropocene”), and to suggest solutions to the climate changes that concern them.
In a city of unhinged property values and taxes, emerging and unrepresented artists have a difficult task of finding galleries to show their work. As exhibitors of the 2018 Capture Photography Festival, Sally Buck and Kent Lins are exhibiting, in conjunction, their photobased work installed in one of two rental vans. Sally’s series is titled Open City, Kent’s series is titled Sweet Dense City.
The rental vans will be re-branded for Van Galleries, and easily found by checking this website, @vangalleries on Instagram, @vangalleries on Twitter, or @vangalleries on facebook. They will be popping up at various locations and times, throughout the month of April.
