LIFE: AS WE’VE KNOWN IT
2212 Main Mall, UBC
On now – 18 artist prints from Life: As We’ve Known It appear in this exhibition at Vancouver’s Beaty Biodiversity Museum. Along with related installations (and an Instagram booth!) the entire series of 132 photographs will be displayed at their native 4×5 inch dimension.
If you’re in Vancouver for Thursday, April 19th please join us for the artist reception from 6 to 830pm.
“There is a distinct eeriness looking at an image from this series by David Ellingsen. The dark glow suspending each subject is as compelling as it is unnatural. How will these photographs be viewed by our descendants and what will remain of these species, or their human viewers? As our planet enters another mass extinction period, only the sixth in its 4.5 billion year history, the photographs in Life: As We’ve Known It respond to this anthropogenic event of unprecedented scale.”
