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 Angela Fama and Christine Germano
Angela Fama is a multidisciplinary artist, practising as a contemporary photographer, both artistically and commercially for over 20 years.
Born in Tennessee, raised in Ottawa and Zimbabwe, Angelea currently places the Vancouver BC community as her home. Often through collaborative interaction with subjects, Angela’s work investigates themes of meaning, self, connection, emotion and change. She is often found burrowing through the endless excess, interested in the serenity that can be found in the acceptance of transient stability always present in life.
Christine Germano is photojournalist who, since 2000, has been collaborating with Indigenous communities as a photographer, educator and curator with a focus on UN Climate change.
Since 2000, Christine Germano has been collaborating with Indigenous communities as a photographer, educator and curator. The international photojournalism project titled Portraits of Resilience has allowed her to work with indigenous youth to illustrate the personal and ethical effects of climate change on their communities. Since its creation in 2008, the project has occurred in 12 countries and has been exhibited internationally, including the launch at the National Museum of Denmark. With a range of education, awards, and project coordination experience within art and design under her belt, Christine’s exceptional work has provided youth with a medium to share their voice during a crucial period of time.
