A One-of-a-Kind Event Two Years in a Row

Posted by on October 4, 2010 at 8:45 am.

Vancouver, BC (October 4, 2010): For 12 hours on a cold and rainy September Sunday, 60 resilient photographers braved the elements to capture their interpretations of 12 randomly drawn themes with only 12 exposures of 35mm film. Now it’s time to reveal the results of the 2nd annual 12×12 Vancouver Photo Marathon with a peek at Marathoner #2’s take on “My Entry Number*.” To see the rest of Robert Fougere’s photo set and that of our other marathoners, check out the exhibit where we will relive the excitement of that day’s events as we celebrate the art of film photography.

Despite the wet forecast on September 12th, all of our marathoners clearly took “The High Road*” and decided to take on Mother Nature’s challenge. They may have been “Torn Apart*” by the hourly themes but bouts of creativity proved that such moments were simply “Expendables*” when trying to capture the “Ultimate*” shot based on their own “Secret World*” of imagination. At the half way mark, Viktor Bounce led a re-energizing exercise to remind all the photographers that “Persistence*” pays off and not to let the “Dog Eat Dog*” world out there get them down. With this “Vague*” message, marathoners soldiered on in the hopes that they wouldn’t have to “Resort*” to clichés. It definitely wasn’t as “Easy as Pie*” and for anyone to miss the one-day exhibit would be very “Unfunny*.”

Over 700 untouched photos will be on display and prizes awarded to the best prints as adjudicated by an esteemed panel of judges that include ET Canada’s Erin Cebula, Vancouver Photo Workshops director Marc Koegel, the dynamic duo of Adam & Kev from Adam & Kev Photography, and 12×12 committee member John Biehler. Come join us on Saturday October 16th, 2010 as 60 marathoners regroup with nervous anticipation to find out how their images developed.
