Along with the release of their new issue, and with the help of 10 diverse local artists working with photography, a Vancouver-based print publication SAD STORE brings back to life a quaint and nostalgic analog medium: the disposable camera.
This weekend alone (December 11-12), the resulting images included in ‘The Disposable Camera Project: FOUND’ will be on display in Gastown at 45 Blood Alley Square. Curious viewers can expect to see photos inspired by the magazine’s current theme, “Found”, of the following attendees: Joy Gyamfi, Shawn duff, Divya nanray, Jamie Gurnell, Alia youssef, Christian Nicolay, Alison abacus, Madeline Barbier, Banafshe Salehi, and STANKDADDY. All images are also available for purchase, with all proceeds going directly to the artists.
There are three time slots available to experience “FOUND”: a preview on Saturday morning from 1 to 5 p.m., the official launch party from 5 to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 6 p.m. All viewing is free to the public; however, with security protocols in mind, an RSVP is required to attend the launch party. You can do it here. And, since this is a SAD event, in addition to the artwork on the walls, attendees can also grab copies of the new issue (pictured above), as well as edited merchandise. limited, while still enjoying music, drinks, good company and more. See you at the show!
