Capture Photography Festival 2021

By Karen Henry

Given the multifaceted nature of the Capture festival, Karen Henry decided to focus on the part that took place in the public space. It must be said that the 2021 edition was not without controversy after the sudden removal of Steven Shearer’s series devoted to sleep. “The sleeping subjects are inherently vulnerable,” Henry notes, “and they made a number of people uneasy.” Henry had a number of questions concerning this “debacle.” Had the organizers taken account of the fentanyl crisis raging in Vancouver? Had an advertising company decided what could be seen? Henry also reviews other projects, including those by Anique Jordan and Jordan Bennett, which, by talking about Black or Indigenous communities, “evoke the ongoing experience of loss, but also hold the promise (and challenge) of so much more to be said.”
