SAD MAG | Disposable Camera Project IV: Nostalgia

  • 1050 E Hastings St Vancouver (map)

Join us for the fourth annual Disposable Camera Project! We gave disposable cameras to some of our favourite artists in the city, and we'll be sharing the best photos from each roll along with wine, cider, and dancing as part of Capture Photography Festival. Admission is free.

When the word nostalgia was first used, it referred to medical-grade homesickness. Today, the term is always on our tongues, partly due to pop culture’s fascination with the past. This year, DCP IV takes nostalgia as its central theme: from rose-coloured glasses, to resurrecting the dead, and ruminating on what could have been. Each artist, using one 35mm disposable camera, engages their own nostalgia, creating a reflexive interrogation of memory, histories, and parallel temporalities; investigating the sweetness and sadness of loved things lost.
