Lincoln Clarkes show

My dear friend photographer Lincoln Clarkes is having an opening tomorrow: “P r O t E s T,” a window display exhibition from July 16th – 31st 2021, 234 East 5th Ave  – at 4by4on5th in Vancouver. The “opening social” is tomorrow, Friday, from 5:00 – 7:00pm. From the news release:

When environmentalist Greta Thunberg traveled the globe, millions of concerned youth following in her wake, adding their voices to her emotionally succinct vocabulary targeting  governments and corporate agendas that put profits before people.  Were you there experiencing the tsunami of environmental awareness?

This major protest movement is relived in Lincoln Clarkes’ photographs. Clarkes’ P r O t E s T postcard series was photographed at the zenith of Thunberg’s  media-fuelled mission during her visit to Vancouver in October, 2019. There are over fifty identifiable faces, surprisingly unaware of Clarkes’ camera  capturing their powerful, at times poetic messages.

Throughout his prolific career, Clarkes has photographed several major protests and has published numerous postcard series. “P r O t E s T” is a remarkable combination of both sharp messaging and vital images. 

I will be there with bells and beret on!
