Covet is a project designed to support and cultivate Vancouver’s community of photographers. The talent pool of shooters in our city runs deep and our unique styles produce an endless torrent of work. The aesthetic choices made behind the lens are as varied as the people who create them. Covet takes the creative influences of Vancouver-based photographers, separates them from their source, and unites them in a unique mashup of new perspectives.
Favourite people and places quickly become dominant in the images we produce. What we Covet becomes obvious. But what if we upended our established habits and introduced completely new muses to our work? The result would be this exhibition.
