2024 Capture Photography Festival Featured Exhibition “On Time”

Consider this your personal invitation to attend, On Time, the Featured Exhibition of this year’s Capture Photography Festival. I had the honour of co-curating the exhibition and I’d love for you to come to the opening at the Pendulum Gallery on April 4th—the event will officially launch the festival! Admission is Free but there will be limited capacity in the gallery space, hit the link below to reserve a spot.

On Time features works by Sungseok Ahn, Gabi Dao, Pendarvis Harshaw, Brandon Tauszik, Aaron Leon, Anthony Lepore, Diane Meyer, Alp Peker, and Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez. Thank you to everyone who submitted work for consideration, we had a lot of thought provoking work to look through.

On Time considers the ways in which contemporary lens-based artists have challenged the inextricably linked relationship between time and photography and the traditional notion that an image captures a single moment outside the temporal flow. Through their work, the artists in this exhibition ask questions around how photographs can be durational, provide context, and point to what happens before and after. How can practitioners collaborate with time or make time an ally in conveying their message?

The exhibition is organized by Capture Photography Festival in partnership with Booooooom and is co-curated by Emmy Lee Wall, Executive Director and Chief Curator, Capture Photography Festival, Jeff Hamada, Founder and Editor in Chief, Booooooom, and Chelsea Yuill, Assistant Curator, Capture Photography Festival.

On Time is presented by the Audain Foundation, with generous support from the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association, MLT Aikins, PwC Canada, and Leslie Lee and John Murphy.
