Voyeur Nocturne: Artist Talk and Exhibit with Amyn Nasser
June 22, 2017 6-8:00pm
LUMAS Gastown – 305 Water Street
Amyn Nasser’s Voyeur Nocturne collection is the result of a ten-month project exploring Vancouver’s high-rise jungle from unknown perspectives. His concept of exploring the essence of Vancouver at night through colour, contour and light has produced a series of exceptional architectural photographs.
Though shot from agar, the city’s silhouette is bathed in a harmonious light and emits a welcoming warmth, inviting us to linger the way a lit window does a silent observer.
This event is free but space is limited. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
Exhibition runs June 22 – July 2, 2017
