If you’re from or in Vancouver this fall, consider attending a screening of ‘Violent' at the Vancouver International Film Festival, which runs Sep 25 - Oct 10.

Violent is the debut feature film of local production company Amazing Factory, featuring an original (and skin-shivering) soundtrack from local musicians We Are The City, and beautiful cinematography by my friend Joseph Schweers.

Watch the trailer here.

Window Seat is a sequence of simple and beautiful gestures that both acknowledges the metaphor of photography-as-window and consciously resists reading the world metaphorically. Rather, Jennilee Marigomen’s photographs show the benefit of careful attention to the overlooked and often ephemeral beauty in our everyday surroundings. 

The succession of objects and scenes slowly reveal the project’s context: one comes to recognize the seaside town’s whitewashed walls, sunseekers, blue sea, and bluer swimming pools. Yet even as street signs and warm light hint at a geographical referent for the work, the images in Window Seat continually veer away from a unified narrative, documenting neither a place nor a journey, in service of the beautiful particular. Within the project, the world’s pieces are celebrated through fragmentary, isolated, and quietly beautiful frames untasked with telling a larger, linear story. Rather, the sequence of images suggests that the world is made up of neglected sites imbedded within, and constitutive of, the everyday, which the keen sensibilities of a talented photographer can animate, arrange, and make deeply compelling for the viewer.  - Nich McElroy
