DISCOVER SURREY | CALL FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS |
DL Sep 20th

@discoversurreybc Attention Surrey photographers! We are on the hunt for six (amateur or not) photographers to participate in a photography project with us. We are looking for at least six images that showcase your neighbourhood, as you experience it. You will be asked to complete a six-question form and provide at least one image that represents your answer to each question. We’ll pair you with two local businesses to make a connection and capture business owner profile images, but the other four are up to you (and feel free to dig into your archives – if you already have four amazing images that you’d like to share, that’s great! But you can also lean into the campaign and capture fresh imagery that tells a cohesive story.) Final, edited photography should be provided by September 20th – how and when you shoot is up to your creative vision! If you’re curious follow the link in our bio for more information.

ID: A poster featuring a close-up of Olúwáṣọlá dressed in intricately designed red, maroon, blue, and black garment adorned with beads and colourful strings that hang down. The text reads: “I see; I breathe; I am! | Curated by the Black Arts Centre | Sep 17 – Dec 11, 2022 | surrey.ca/artgallery”

CITY | Zachery Cameron Longboy: Guardian of Sleep | Until Nov 26th

Morphing animations reminiscent of petroglyphs, running packs of caribou, and footage of the baton-twirling artist leading a Pride parade out of the forest are some of the images in Zachery Cameron Longboy’s video installation Guardian of Sleep. Created completely on his iPhone, this work is the latest in Longboy’s video and performance-based arts practice, which spans the 90s to present, and visually speaks to the artist’s layered experiences of identity.
