ART Rental & Sales
September 17 to October 31, 2015
Opening reception: Thursday, October 1, 6pm
Inspired by social media such as Instagram and Twitter, and combining traditional print and photographic methods, Instant is a collaboration between four photographers (Rémi Thériault, Angelina McCormick, Christopher Schlesak and Anouk Landry) and an Ottawa printmaker, Anne Wanda Tessier. Equipped with an old Polaroid camera, each photographer was provided a weekly word, or hashtag, to guide them in capturing the perfect instant for that week. The words were inspired by the latest trends on Instagram and other social media. Each letterpressed word is accompanied by a Polaroid, along with geographic details of the moment the image was captured.
Come discover a different take on capturing an Instant in today’s social media age.
Tessier selected a group of photographers with various backgrounds, some who are active on Instagram and others who prefer to use old technology.
