Launched a year ago in the fall of 2017, FOTOFILMIC//SOLO is a unique mentoring program designed for emerging & mid-career photographers working on film & other analogue media. Each artist presented here received a 2-month solo exhibition this past year & met with their respective juror(s) on Bowen island as guests to their weekend master workshop. The program encourages in-person networking and aims at fostering intergenerational dialogues on contemporary issues reshaping material photographic practices in the digital age.
