Intervals: Photography in Flux
This exhibition is part of the international Capture Photography Exhibition and Intervals is about the transitory nature of photography. Every image, depending on time, location, viewer, and context, is constantly in transition. Photographers create meaning that fluctuates in the intervals between their images—whether it be the intervals between the shutter opening and closing, the intervals between the images on the wall, the interval between the image and the material on which it is presented, or the interval between the meaning that arises and changes in the viewer as they move between images. Intervals presents the work of seven contemporary photographers based in Vancouver, Victoria, Los Angeles, Honolulu, and Iran who explore the rhythms and tension of their geographical, social, and psychological landscapes.
