PRESS - new work by BRIAN HOWELL
VANCOUVER, February 16th, 2013 – Winsor Gallery is pleased to announce a forthcoming exhibition of work by renowned contemporary photographer Brian Howell. Press opens February 28 (6-9pm), and runs from February 28 – April 6. Howell’s new series of photographs were taken inside several newspaper printing plants, this large-scale series of images offers a bold look inside the factories that support the journalism industry.
“Brian’s new body of work confounds the very essence of the 5 W’s of Journalism: Who, What, Where, When, Why. Moreover, these haunting images capture the ever elusive How; how the worlds of journalism and the printed press have dramatically shifted in the wake of the digital age.” says gallery owner Jennifer Winsor. “Anyone looking for a rich multifaceted approach to photography is welcome to Brian’s show February 28 – April 6, they will be drawn into a whole new world entirely.”
About Brian Howell
Brian Howell graduated from Ryerson Polytechnical University in Toronto in 1994 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Film and Photography. Howell’s subjects are drawn from fringe, or marginalized communities; people and places resonant with allegorical meanings for an age that seems, to Howell, both broken and blinded. Each of Brian Howell’s individual projects have been successfully exhibited and published as a book or catalogue. His work has been featured in MacLean’s, The Vancouver Sun, the National Post, Geist Magazine and the Globe and Mail.
