Starting tonight and running throughout April and May the  Capture Photography Festival is happening at various venues in Vancouver. Showcasing a range of photographers with over 100 exhibitions as well as public-art installations, panels, workshops and films.

The festival aims to foster emerging talent, encourage active community participation, and initiate public conversation about photography as an art form, as a means of communication, and as a mode of cultural documentation and social reflection. Each April, Capture features dynamic, high-profile exhibitions from Vancouver’s leading public and commercial galleries, public installations, and a series of community-based photo workshops, tours, artist talks, films, and panel discussions.
