Vancouver is now home to a fine art sculpture biennale featuring top artists from around the world. The pieces will be up for 2 years (biennale), and what makes this display unique is that they are all public access, all the time (most biennales are a mix of gallery-bound and public land installations).
This is great news for those of us who like to shoot… We’re talking about world-class art in one of the most beautiful settings in the world, and we’re encouraged to take photos (instead of surrendering our gear to security). That said, I task you with finding the interesting angles, interesting light, framing the pieces or finding a beautiful detail.
Take your dog for a walk, make a date out of it, bring your glass (camera) and have some fun. Tour them all or focus on one or two. Post your photos with the tag ‘vancouverbiennale’ and collaborate with us. We’ll be trolling around with an eye out for the most interesting photos – and some prizes in hand.
Submit your shots to this group and we’d love to post your images up on the website with a photo credit (either add a creative commons license or we’ll email you with a request). The BURNKIT team donated the site design and we’d love to have as many excellent photos up as possible (and I’m excited to see your brilliance in action).
Enough chatter – get out there, experience some fine art and bring your camera.
PostScript- More on prizes and prize frequency in the discussion forum. (At the moment we’ve got free passes to the Vancouver Art Gallery, and it looks like we’ll be getting other interesting prizes too.) Also, look for us in 24 Hours newspaper, we’re going to publish selected photos w/credits… But we know it’s not just about the prizes either 🙂
