PERSPECTIVE: 12x12 Raw Talent Gallery Showcase

Last night, on Saturday, January 16th, 2010, over 300 photographers and photography enthusiasts gathered together at Vancouver Photo Workshops to see the grand unveiling of 600+ images created during the 12x12 Vancouver Photo Marathon. As one of the planning committee members, I was one of six people who helped set up and organize the layout of the show. We're especially proud because, judging by our impressive turnout, it seems we were able to bring together Vancouver's entire photographic community.

I was also given the opportunity to be a roaming photographer during the show. Between checking out the work myself and grooving to the slick DJ beats of Vancouver's own Jeremy Lim, I was tasked with capturing the event, the attendees and the winners in all their photogenic glory. A big special thanks to the other planning committee members (Morten Rand-Hendriksen, John Biehler, Angela Chih, Anny Chih and Lesley Tetlow Stefanski) for making this all possible and being wonderful teammates. I look forward to working with you all again for 12x12YVR 2010/11!
