Burnaby residents can enjoy the Vancouver Capture 2019 Photography Festival right here at home.
The Burnaby Photographic Society is holding a print show at Deer Lake Gallery as part of the annual region-wide celebration of photography. The exhibition will open on Thursday, April 11, with a reception starting at 7 p.m., and continue to Saturday, May 4.
The theme of the exhibition is Transition, “defined as a movement, development or evolution from one form, stage or style to another,” as a press release says.
“Since its invention in the 1800s, photography has portrayed transitions to the world around us in many forms. The advantage of photography is a tool to record the transformation process,” the release says.
Members of the Burnaby Photographic Society have been embracing the art, science and craft of photography since 1970.
“We are DSLR slingers, point and shooters, smartphoners and darkroomers,” the group says in the press release. “We are documentarians, artists and storytellers. We are hobbyists, professionals, and we see in black-and-white, in colour and even in infrared.”
An artist’s talk, featuring professional photographer Grant Withers, will be held on Saturday, April 13 from 2 to 3 p.m.
