Within the photographic process of image-making, the artist is given tools to alter and manipulate the evidence of what is witnessed. During the summer, students involved in the Photography Intensive were led through a series of photo walks and workshops aimed towards meaning and making.
Students including Slater Biln, Avi Maru, Evan Muir, Sam Tortell, and Matisse Wenban were encouraged to work with past and present approaches to photography such as analogue photography in the darkroom and digital processes in the computer lab. Through experimentation and the practice of seeing, students were challenged to respond to the ever-changing landscape of Metro Vancouver and create work that reflected their ideas of the past, present, and future of their home.
With guidance from their instructors, students explored a range of techniques and ideas that focused on contrast, layering, and digital alteration in preparation for their exhibit construct; past, present and future at the Olympic Village SkyTrain Station as part of the Capture Photography Festival Public Art Program.
