CAPIC Vancouver has gathered a number of incredible Vancouver based, influential photographers from variety of different disciplines. Join us for one evening of discussion with the topic “How Images Affect Us” A “Pecha Kucha”/Creative Mornings” style of talk where each photographer will have 7 minutes to discuss their photography and how it impacts themselves and others, this will be followed by a Q and A session with all of the participants.
Two of those photographers are Vince Hemingson and Ross Den Otter
Vince Hemingson is a fine-art nude and portrait photographer, writer/adventurer, world traveler, best-selling author and filmmaker
Vince has been a passionate photography for more than thirty years.
His long form photography series, The Nude in the Landscape, seeks to create a body of work that frames the human body in the natural environment of the Pacific Northwest; juxtaposing the frailness and inherent fragility of the human form against the scale and grandeur of the landscape, contrasting the textures and tones between these two elements, and examining the relationship between the viewer and the subject. It is slated for publication in 2015.
Vince has been fortunate enough to have won several awards, and his work has been published in VOLO and Blur Magazines, as well as other publications.
