Victoria photographers’ network develops

First exhibit opens at the MAC for local fine art shooters

Tom McCabe's photo of a girl and bike is just one of 60 images to be exhibited in Attachment. The show features 12 Victoria-area fine arts photographers and runs April 2 to May 27 at the Gallery at the Mac.

Connecting through social media is all very well, but after a group of local photographers met at a marketing workshop last year they decided to meet again in real time.

“We thought we needed face-to-face group communications,” says member Lis Bailly. The group meets every Sunday afternoon at Luz Gallery on Oak Bay Avenue to critique each others’ work.

Bailly helped organize the group of fine art photographers’ first exhibit which opens April 2 at the Gallery at the MAC (McPherson Playhouse).

More than 60 works, black and white as well as colour, covering subjects from portraits to landscape will be on display.

The group is connected by a desire to work with a series of themes, hence the title of the show, Attachment. “We’re interested in taking the idea of photo series a bit further – these aren’t just random shots,” Bailly says about the exhibit. Whether it’s a girl holding her bike, a lone tree in a field, or a sunset over a river, the works explore connections and loss in images shot in both digital and film formats.

Attachment runs April 2 to May 27 at the Gallery at the Mac (by appointment), 625 Fisgard St.

There will be an opening night reception open to the public April 2 from 7 to 9 p.m. For more information about the show go to
