Curator's Talk & Tour: A Diachronic Look into Vancouver Street Photography w/Katie Huisman
A Diachronic Look into Vancouver Street Photography from Foncie Pulice to the 21st Century
(with Capture Photography Festival)
Street photography is traditionally part of the “straight photography” movement, priding itself in the unaltered photograph that, without bias, documents real life. Street photography has continued to fascinate us for more than a century, capturing people with absolute candor in public places and providing a clear view of humanity.
The practice of street photography has become even more popular in the 21st century–favouring society’s increasing need to document, capture, and share everyday life snapshot by snapshot. Join Capture Festival Guest Co-Curator Katie Huisman for an exploration of how this notion is explored by the four contemporary Vancouver photographers showcased in this MOV Studio exhibition –Lincoln Clarkes, Brian Howell, Angela Fama, and John Goldsmith.
