So I come home from an interview with Urban Rush and what do I find in my Twitter feed but a link to this awesome video featuring Clark Lundeen – participant #50 from this year’s event by Steve Tan. It’s a great little sit-down with one of our participants and it gives a nice glimpse […]

When it comes to photography, there is something to be said for size. Seeing a great photo enlarged to fill your field of vision does something to your perception of the image portrayed. There are few mediums more fit for displaying photographic art than real art canvas. The texture created by tightly woven fibres melding […]

Keeping Film (and 12×12) Alive

Posted by on September 23, 2010 at 9:29 am.

There was never a question that film would be the medium used for the 12×12 Vancouver Photo Marathon. It seemed a sound idea at the time but we quickly discovered that film (and in particular, 12 exposure film) for all its amazing qualities, is a dying technology. A call to Kodak Canada all but confirmed […]

The View from Behind the Camera

12 Hours in 44 Seconds

We mounted two timelapse cameras on opposite ends of the room during the marathon. The result is a video that really shows the buzz of activity that was at Blenz in Yaletown that day. Wonder what it looks like when 60+ people run in and out of a coffee shop in Vancouver for a whole […]

The 12×12 PhotoPivot Collection Going through about 1,400 photos from the 12×12 Vancouver Photo Marathon can be a true challenge. Or at least it used to be until now. With the help of Chris Arnold from we have developed a Live Labs Pivot collection of all the photos from our events. The pivot collection […]

Vancouver Photo Workshops Host a Pre-Event Workshop

Posted by on September 11, 2010 at 8:00 am.

The first 12×12 Vancouver Photo Marathon went off without a hitch… for almost all of the participants. In the end three blank films came in, two because of loading errors and one because of a notoriously fussy camera (the very same camera Carol Browne has decided to use for this year’s event!). In light of […]
