Shooting Vancouver one day at a time

July 7, 2010 Posted by Kris in Arts

A couple of days ago I ran into photographer Tim Van Horn as I was cycling by Jericho Beach. The strip of foot-high photos around his van accompanied by some signage on top caught my eye. Van Horn is working on a project he calls Vancouver 125 to mark the city’s anniversary in 2011. Currently travelling and living in his van, Van Horn is taking an on-the-ground, on-the-street approach to his project meeting people and capturing images.

He plans to spend 125 days shooting Vancouver and display the work online and elsewhere using super high resolution Gigaspan technology. It’s a novel idea and his people portraits and landscapes are very good!
