Vancouverites, this one is for you. So It Is: Vancouver aspires to be a different kind of coffee table book. For Adam Schelle and Kev Holloway, the photography duo behind the project, this city isn’t perfect. Or, at least, that’s not what they want this particular book to be about.
Springing from a desire to represent the small fraction of people who make Vancouver so amazing, but in a way that isn’t about the flawless beauty Vancouver is known for, everyone featured in the book will be photographed only after being soaked with a watering can filled with water. Learn more about Adam and Kev, and their Kickstarter project below!
A couple years ago Max Marshall and Paul Paper organized a unique photo show called “Blog Reblog” where they both curated a group of 100 photographers, paired them up, and then had each one select an image from the other photographer’s portfolio.
The two have just launched a new project called This Is It/Now, a photography show that exists on solely on Snapchat. Artists Nico Krijno, Roxana Azar, Sergiy Barchuk, Ruth Van Beek, Lonneke van der Palen, and David Brandon Geeting will each take over the project’s snapchat account for a week. The show will close with a panel discussion at Signal Gallery in Brooklyn.
You can view the show by following the snapchat username: thisisitnowshow. Artist Roxana Azar is currently posting.
