Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances this event has been cancelled.

Join artist Shea Kirk at Daine Singer for an informal discussion of the processes and techniques behind his ongoing stereoscopic series, Vantages. In the series, Kirk invites people to be photographed in his home studio in front of simple backdrops. Working with dual large format cameras, each portrait is exposed onto separate sheets of black and white film, simultaneously capturing two images of the sitter from different perspectives. The process is slow and methodical, enabling an intimate exchange that highlights the agency between photographer and subject.

Free, booking required.
