Night Vision returns this summer, and its organizers are honoured to be invited to take part in the revitalization of Vancouver’s Chinatown Night Market. First held in 2009, Night Vision has illuminated Vancouver summer nights and filled hundreds of ears with music on two blissful occasions. The events showcased beautiful photography from artists around the world, and lent Strathcona park a magical atmosphere (complete with sprinkler-induced excitement). There’s nothing quite as nice as this: gazing at glowing photographs projected on a big screen under cover of summer darkness.
Natasha Lands returns this year to DJ to a selection of Canadian photographers. The exhibition will be projected onto the side of the Keefer Bar in the middle of Chinatown, and will begin with a selection of photographs by Fred Herzog. Herzog has been photographing the essence of Vancouver urban life for over fifty years. His images capture a time and place that is uniquely its own, and the faces, streets, and signage captured on film remain as vital and animated now as they were in the 50s and 60s. He will be joined by forty photographers from across Canada, reaching from Corner Brook, Newfoundland (John King) to Victoria, British Columbia (Ali Bosworth).
Meet at the parking lot of The Keefer on Friday, July 5th at 10pm. Go early to enjoy the market. Be sure to bring a comfortable chair or a few blankets because they’ve traded out grassy fields for tall buildings and they want you to stay for the whole show.
When: July 5th at 10pm
Where: Chinatown Night Market, Parking lot of 135 Keefer St, Vancouver
