“No Where Now Here explores how cultural landscapes are increasingly becoming criss-crossed and blurred due to globalization, shifting borders, and the current migration crisis. What are our perceptions of borders, boundaries, and shared habitats in today’s global climate?”
For analogue-based photography, is it the best of times, or the worst? Could the future be analogue after all? Panelists Nicole Langdon-Davies (Beau Photo) and Katie Stewart (SAD Magazine), and moderator Alistair Henning explore these questions in this talk organized by ArtsScene Vancouver.

How have artists approached the atomic in their work? How do the intertwining histories of nuclear power and photography affect artistic production? As new threat of nuclear action looms today, what responsibilities does art have to address this topic? Together Siddall and O’Brian trace the influence of the nuclear on artistic expression in the atomic age and of art on nuclear activity. Part of Capture Photo Fest's speaker series.
