I visited Vancouver’s PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Ever since catching two quick photos from a moving vehicle (don’t worry; I wasn’t the one driving!) last year, I’ve been interested in it as a place to take photos. The two-image colour piece (shown fourth in this post) is what I saw from the truck window, and the rest of the photos are ones taken at the fair in August.
The fair is a place of vibrant colours, and also strong lines and motion. Colour photography seemed like an obvious choice, but black and white is always closest to my heart, so I had to do that, too. I’ll be glad to return to the fair next year and try these subjects again.
