Exposure Studio Collective has two concurrent exhibitions running during January – February 2022 at neighbouring venues in Crescent Heights, Calgary. The Sought x Found exhibition is at the café with the same name located on Centre Street, just a short walk north from the main entrance to Rotary Park, where In Conversation, an outdoor exhibition in a series of six mini-galleries, is taking place. Both exhibitions are part of the Exposure Photography Festival.
Sought x Found
The Sought x Found show is a diverse set of twenty-five images by eleven members of Exposure Collective. Calgary’s urban landscape and culture are shown in Cary Schatz’s photographs from the 2021 Stampede, Danny Luong’s wanderings beneath a railway bridge, and Calgary Tower narratives by Tyler Tanner and David Youn.
Emma Palm’s collage work plays with legacy, memory, and livelihood questions. Cyanotype prints from Julya Hajnoczky’s Prairie Biome project look at how agriculture and urban development have dramatically altered the prairie landscapes of Western Canada. Environmental themes also feature in Angela Boehm’s grand regenerating forest visions from her project The Giving Trees (see photograph featured above) and J. Ashley Nixon’s black & white selections from his new book World Heritage. Environmental Change.
Enigmatic carbon prints by David Christensen and intimate portraits by Eric Donovan and Lily Pavle will hold your eye just a little longer as you contemplate life over a curated cup of coffee or tea in the calming ambience of Sought and Found Café.
