WE LC OME TO F L AS H FES T 2 0 1 7 ! The FLASH photographic festival has made it though the black and white era and into the world of full colour programs. There are many people to thank for helping get FLASH off the ground for the 4th time, but Friesens Publishing in Altona are ultimately responsible for making the thing you are now holding in your hands. Thank you! Their motto says that they will only be successful if the community is also successful, and FLASH has likewise believed that since we began in 2014. The festival is only as big as the artists want it to be and it is our job to make everything a win / win situation and by that process we will provide artists with an excuse to put on a show and meet other Winnipeg and Manitoba photographers. Being a photographer tends to be a solo process, like writing a novel, and so we have many events in October where people can meet and share some ideas. FLASH also has many educational days where Studio Lighting, Salt Printing Processes, and talks are given by accomplished photographers, and they are FREE! Well, they are not totally free; we are collecting tins of food and small donations of $$$ for Winnipeg Harvest, the festival’s charity partner. What other news do we have this year? Last year’s Nuit Blanche was a hit with the “Wall of Fame” where we projected people’s portraits up onto the McKim building by Albert street, and so we are doing it again! We tried to get the Guinness Book of World Records to register a record of “The most Portraits taken in three hours” during this event but they said “We do not base craft records on speed as the only way to break such a record would be to increase the speed to such a level that the quality of the craft would inevitably be compromised. The number of photographs that a record such as this would eventually get to would also be dependent on the limitations of technology.” So it was a no go. But I see their point. Someone could just hold the button down on the camera and have 100 people run by the lens. Darn. We tried…even still Nuit Blanche will still be amazing!

Giant Photographic Garage Sale, see page 10

See you out there during the whole month of October, at one of our 20 events, including a Giant Photographic Garage Sale. Right! I forgot; we are having one of those on October 21st. Do you have some vintage photo gear and books you want to sell? See the Events section later on in this nice colour program for details. I’m very excited about that one, and Garage Sales in general.

T H ANK YO U It’s 2017, FLASH is celebrating it’s 4th year, and we have lots of people to thank for that! First we’d like to thank the photographers, without whom we would not have a festival! Our community of artists and experts is strong, and photography is certainly alive and well in 2017! We also want to thank each other, which sounds silly, we know, but without each of us and our talents in different areas, Flash would not even exist! FLASH would like to thank the following for their involvement. Without generous contributions of time, expertise, physical space, and monetary contributions, we would not be able to put together programming like we do! Your involvement makes our festival possible!

This year we’ve got something new for all of our contributing photographers; a bag of offers and goodies from some of our local festival supporters. We are so excited to see local business support our artists, and look forward to growing these partnerships in the future. Thank you for your contribution to the FLASH swag bag! Thanks goes to...

BOOK LAUNCH

N O RT H END REV IS ITED: P H OTOGRAPHS BY J O H N PASK IEVICH with Special Guest Alison Gillmor WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4, 7PM MCNALLY ROBINSON BOOKSELLERS 1120 GRANT AVENUE FREE

Cities and the people who live in them are enduring subjects of photography. Winnipeg’s North End is one of North America’s iconic neighbourhoods, a place where the city’s unique character and politics have been forged. First built when Winnipeg was the ‘Chicago of the North,’ the North End is the great Canadian melting pot, where Indigenous peoples and Old World immigrants cross the boundaries of ethnicity, class, and culture. Like New York’s Lower East Side, the North End is also the place that helped to forge Winnipeg’s political identity of resistance and revolt. Award-winning filmmaker John Paskievich grew up in Winnipeg’s North End, and for the last forty years he has photographed its people and captured its spirit. Paskievich’s films, many made for the National Film Board of Canada, follow the lives of different outsiders, from Slovakian Roma to stutterers. The North End Revisited brings together many of the photographs from Paskievich’s now-classic book The North End (2007) with eighty additional images to present a deep and poignant picture of a special community. Texts by art critics Stephen Osborne and Alison Gillmor and film scholar George Melnyk explore the different aspects of Paskievich’s work and add context from Winnipeg’s history and culture.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, 7 PM SCREENING INTRODUCED BY JOHN PASKIEVICH.

“Errol Morris’s masterful and surprising new film is simplicity itself: a visit to the Cambridge, Massachusetts, studio of his friend, the 20×24 Polaroid portrait photographer Elsa Dorfman, who specifies on her website that she likes her subjects “to wear clothes (and to bring toys, skis, books, tennis racquets, musical instruments, and particularly pets…).” As this charming, articulate, and calmly uncompromising woman takes us through her 50-plus years of remarkable but fragile images of paying customers, commissioned subjects, family, and close friends (including the poet Allen Ginsberg), the sense of time passing grows ever more acute.” -The Film Society of Lincoln Centre “Dorfman’s story is the story of a woman who had the creative energy of an artist…In “The B-Side,” Morris creates a magnificent tribute to the art and technology of photography itself.” -Richard Brody, The New Yorker

“A gentle-hearted gem...profoundly subtle. As a secretary at Grove Press, she managed to meet a host of Beat generation literary characters. The great poet Allen Ginsberg became a lifelong friend and one of Dorfman’s most frequent photo subjects, which in the 1960s and ‘70s grew to include such notables as Bob Dylan, Anais Nin, Jorge Luis Borges, and Joni Mitchell.” -Andrew Barker, Variety Plays With: Ted Baryluk’s Grocery / Directed by John Paskievich and Michael Mirus, 1984, Canada, 10 min / Best Short Film at the Canadian Genie Awards, this film profiles UkrainianCanadian Ted Baryluk, whose grocery store has been a fixture in Winnipeg’s North End for over 20 years. A special presentation in conjunction with the Flash Photographic Festival and the re-release of John Paskievich’s award winning book of photographs, The North End Revisited, which features 80 new photographs. Signed copies of the book will be available for sale at the screening.

“A warm and hugely entertaining documentary about a woman whose work gained fame for utilising the Polaroid 20 X 24 camera...Endlessly charming…Dorfman is a force. “ -Benjamin Lee, The Guardian

Earlier in the month of October, a selection of photographers were set a rather difficult task. In the historic Dalnavert, they had only 30 minutes with two models dressed in clothing of the era. And here is the kicker… they were only allowed to hit the shutter on their digital cameras twelve times. No mercy for mistakes, just like photographers from 1895. Their goal was to make the loveliest and most pleasing photographs of people in their historic surroundings, albeit looking like they’ve gone back in time 120 years. Each photographer’s best three images have been printed out, without the modern conveniences of PHOTOSHOP, and will be presented to the public to politely judge on the evening of October 29th.

Ladies and gentlemen, please join us and judge what you deem to be the best of the best by placing a marble in the corresponding tea cup.

Gabriela Aguero is a visual artist from Argentina who emigrated to Canada in 1985. She holds a BFA Honours from the University of Manitoba and MFA from Louisiana State University. In the past her work addressed issues of human rights, gender, technology and metamorphosis. Gabriela has been recently awarded a Winnipeg Arts Council grant A to develop further into video media. Her work continues with an urgency to address ecology, reason, women and the wild. Gabriela has four children and makes her home in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Treaty One territory. Her favourite place in the world is outdoors in nature.

If you ever walk through St Vital Park and happen to see several people posing in a tree, chances are you have seen Adriano Ali in action with his camera and knee pads. The Caribbean born south end resident bought his first digital camera for the princely sum of $528 (a Sony Cybershot P72) in 2003. He was instantly hooked into the world of photography. He is a big believer of sharing his passion with anyone who asks. He organizes themed photo shoots on a regular basis, the last one’s theme of wearing the outfit you have only worn once but cannot find another occasion to wear it again. Participants range from teens to seniors. He is quick to point out his passion of photography was born out of a sense of enhancing a community. Adriano’s favourite subject on People in Trees whereby portraits are taken in, you guessed it, a tree. Officially it’s to show the strong connection between mankind and Nature. Unofficially, he admits to being too cheap to pay for a studio. His subjects are diverse ranging from formal dress to casual clothes to cosplayers.

KURT ANOS KHAO HOUSE 126 SHERBROOK STREET MONDAY-THURSDAY 11:30AM-2PM/5PM-9PM SATURDAY/SUNDAY 4-9PM

This body of work depicts familiar locations and landmarks of Winnipeg with a twist on reality. These photos are not meant to be clear depictions of the city, but rather are meant to make people question the everyday sights that they are familiar with. It ignores physics and time, and creates an alternate reality of a deconstructed Winnipeg. Kurt Anos is a freelance creative photographer with a keen preference in analogue photography and its related processes. He learned the basics of photography in Architecture school, which is the reason why architecture elements are often involved in this work. Much of his personal photography experiments with double exposure as a way to create meaning or something seemingly impossible in the real world. The images almost have a life of their own as they are often unplanned between exposures. This creates unexpected compositions that are only revealed once the film has been developed and printed with little to no post editing.

AN N A ARÁOZ STARBUCKS 201 PORTAGE AVENUE MONDAY-FRIDAY 6AM-6PM

IT’S NOT ALL FLOWERS Born in Odessa, Ukraine, I started calling Winnipeg my home more than 13 years ago. I decided to start a fresh by taking a Red River College photography program, and ever since I find my passion in taking pictures everywhere I can, even if it’s simply my back yard. Small things that usually escape our attention: leaves and flowers, logs and mushrooms – and small imperfections that under the early morning light transform into spectacular scenes; they all become willing models in my strolls through a park. My areas of interest in photography have been expanding, and while nature photography is still my favourite, I’ve been exploring the beauty of architecture. The geometry of shapes and lines, light and shadows are so different from the soft and freeflowing nature scenes, and I find them fascinating. I chose the Winnipeg Exchange District as the subject of my photo display this year. www.itsnotallflowers.me

I’m a late arrival to still photography. My background is in TV production as a writer/director. I’m learning that one discipline informs the other but I’ve come to love the independence of my still photo pursuits. Television production is so planned and always involves a crew. Setting out to capture wildlife on my own is equal parts patience, good fortune and just putting in the hours. A day off work and a full tank of gas is a great place to start...

C O NNIE CH APPEL SUPER DELUXE PIZZERIA 4-433 RIVER AVENUE TUESDAY-SUNDAY 5-11PM CLOSING PARTY : SUNDAY, OCTOBER 29, 5-9PM

HAND Series The hand embodies gesture, a form of nonverbal communication with broad interpretation that varies with context and culture. Its position references concepts such as touching, offering, blessing, punishing and more. My interest in studying gesture evolved after salvaging two plastic hands from a treasure chest of discarded mannequin limbs. I submerged them in a water environment and attempted to capture their impermanent position and performative movement. I am exploring how the poetic is put forth through assembling artifacts that are individually graceful yet incongruent. Mass-produced mannequin fragments extract the look of flesh just as artificial saltwater pools become strategies for soothing urban inhabitants. The work presents the absent and fragmentary as well as the unseen connections they embody. This union alters the meaning of natural form and conjures up the metaphysical. In an attempt to communicate this, I cultivate objects with the appearance of motion as well as actual gesture. www.connie-chappel.com Instagram @bodyhasfled

PRESS MEN – The long decline of printed news often focuses on the fate of the journalists who create its content, but behind every edition are highly skilled tradespeople who actually put ink to paper -- the pressmen, who preside over highly complex and finely tuned machines that create the news you hold in your hands. The pressmen at the Brandon Sun were responsible not only for that paper but also, for over 2 decades, the Globe and Mail in 3 provinces. In 2010, as outside forces slowly crept in, their positions were eliminated and the thunderous machines they worked on dismantled and sold. These images represent the press room floor in the last few months before their work ended.

Creative Manitoba strengthens, represents and connects Manitoba’s arts and creative industries. We provide training, mentorship and networking opportunities – and for the second year in a row, we are presenting a group exhibition featuring the photographic works of Creative Manitoba’s staff. We are exploring how photography shapes our ideas and how we perceive ourselves, the world around us and our connection to the Manitoba art scene. This is the view from us, our perspective on the world as we see it, providing an insight into who we are and perhaps a glimpse into why we do what we do for our artistic community. Works in the exhibition range from portrait to landscape, figurative to abstract. This is a rare opportunity for a group who tend to focus on the functional side of arts practice to provide a glimpse of who we are as creators, to show something of our passions and our drive to create.

I enjoy photographing a variety of subjects, but had mainly been photographing live music and dance performances. I decided for this year’s festival I would expand my horizons and shift my focus to experiment with the documentary and street areas of photography. I’ve always been interested in the story-telling aspects of photography, and the photo-journalistic approach of capturing the story as it unfolds, without setting the scene or guiding the subject. You wait for the moment, instead of creating it. When shooting performances, I’ve taken the watching, waiting, and anticipating approach. The moments you’re hoping to capture present themselves overtly with live music and dance. I want to use that same approach, and focus it on people being themselves and life unfolding organically as it does in its more fleeting and subtle ways, away from the lights and theatricality.

Erica de la Rosa is a Winnipeg based photographer. Involved with Flashfest last year, she enjoyed it so much that she had to come back for more! The focus of Erica’s photography is everyday objects, architecture and scenes of this city (and maybe some others), images that are routine in our daily lives, the places we walk by but often don’t see, people we encounter everyday but never meet, the small details that make up our days. On a dreary, rainy day, taking pictures through the car window of gargoyles on buildings “because it looks like they are crying”, gives a unique image with no two being the same. It’s these types of images that capture moments in a different way, maybe causing one to wonder what or where is that? October is bound to be a great month! Let’s enjoy!!

Ninety-Five Minutes Getting out into nature is how I recharge. It’s an essential part of my life that I’ve learned to make time for. I’ve found many places within a ninety-five minutes drive from Winnipeg. Each of the locations offers the ability to walk for miles and experience nature. I’m pleased to be able to share a few of them here. Darren Fast is a photographer who likes to explore. Many of his favourite places are a relatively short drive from home. Instagram @solatta

DARCY FINL EY UNDERDOGS 2609 PORTAGE AVENUE MONDAY-SATURDAY 11AM-2AM SUNDAY 11AM-1AM

Darcy Finley is a professional editorial and commercial photographer based in Winnipeg. He earned his Diploma of Photography from the Western Academy of Photography in 2002. In his third season with the Winnipeg Jets, Darcy has captured thousands of exciting images for the organization, on and off the ice. “Having an opportunity to shoot NHL hockey was something I would have never considered a possibility when leaving photography school,” said Finley. “Even after hundreds of games, when I’m on the practice bench or standing on the ice during a big win, I can hardly believe it’s happening. It’s basically a dream come true for a guy who loves hockey and photography.” Instagram @finley.photography

DAV ID FIRM AN GAS STATION ARTS CENTRE 445 RIVER AVENUE MONDAY-FRIDAY 9AM-4PM & PERFORMANCE EVENINGS

I walk. I take pictures. I eat ramen. I love my city. Put these all together and you have Ramen Rambles, a quirky tale of five wintery treks across Winnipeg in search of a good bowl of Japanese soup. It’s a journey through urban landscapes wholly or partially unfamiliar to me (and no doubt, to most people), forcing me to see and experience the city from a fresh perspective. There are two parts to my show. On the table is Ramen Rambles, the book - a narrative journey in words and photos. On the walls are a selection of prints - collages of words and images reimagined from the book. Ramen Rambles was selected for the 2nd Juried PhotoBook Exhibition at the Vermont Center for Photography, August 4-27, 2017. My earlier work has been exhibited and collected widely, including the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the National Gallery of Canada. www.firmagallery.com Blog: www.walkclickmake.com Instagram @dfirman

TO M H ARDER N JOE & LILY 145 PACIFIC AVENUE MONDAY-FRIDAY 7AM-7PM SATURDAY 9AM-4PM

For most of my adult life, I have avoided going into pawn shops and XXX porn stores for more or less the same reason: To avoid being seen by someone I KNOW! But now, I am old enough to just not care anymore about what anyone thinks. Thanks to social media, everyone judges everyone all day long! So I visited some local pawn shops to see what is actually sold there, and of course I took my camera. My pictures display things I did NOT expect to see. TVs and power tools and jewelry, which there is, but depending on the day, also much more. To suggest the link to porn, each photo is named with a double meaning: Bad Ass, Role Player, Bright Shiny Objects, Rubber Fetish, Crotch Rocket, Skin Tight, Spy Cam Selfie, Sheet Music, Sugar Addict, Hot Licks Cheap Tricks, Fashion Plate, Doll Face, Horny Buck, Peddle Filia, Board Stiff If your mind goes there, maybe these names might sound vaguely porn related. So just let it go there! But also consider that just as there is a porn site for every taste, there is a local pawn choice for every possible purchase. Choose your style or type !

IC EL AND IC GR OUP SHOW PEG BEER CO. 125 PACIFIC AVENUE MONDAY-THURSDAY 11AM-11PM FRIDAY/SATURDAY 11AM-12AM SUNDAY 11AM-11PM

A group of photographers and designers traveled from Winnipeg to Iceland in 2015 and drove up to the West Fjords taking photos the whole way. In October of that year they displayed a group show of photographs in FLASH. It’s happening again for 2017 but instead we have some different people and the route took us along the southern shore of Iceland. Even though we were all in the same spots, the landscape showed us different things, which is why Iceland is such a good destination for photography. To see photos from this trip, check out #wpg2isl Photographers taking party in this trip were: Leif Norman Heather Lee Brereton Ian McCausland Darren Fast Walter Potrebka Michael Fedun Amanda Huculak Dean Van De Walle Evan Kuz KJ Rocan

D M IT RY KIRSHNE R THE STORE NEXT DOOR/CHEW 532 WATERLOO STREET MONDAY-SUNDAY 7AM-11PM

Some might think that investigating the world through a lens is a limiting experience, restrictive both in the field of view and the emotional colouring. Dmitry Kirshner could not disagree more. His photographs are not as much a documentary of the life around us but an artistic interpretation of each scene, object, colour or a movement that he wants to share with others. In his view, photography is a uniquely contradictory activity that could be both extremely solitary and contemplative during the process of finding and capturing the image, and yet incredibly social and interactive in sharing the story and the emotions of each photograph with others. His goal, in each of his photographs, is to get the viewer to feel that burst of inspiration and wonder which a photographer experiences when clicking the shutter release. www.dmitrykirshner.com Instagram @dkfotas

AN G IE LEG RAS SCOTSWOOD LINKS ELM CREEK, MB MONDAY-SUNDAY 7AM-9PM

Angie is a rural Manitoba photographer, based in Elm Creek. Although she shoots everything from families to sports, landscape and travel photography are her true loves. With 19.1 million acres of farmland, you’re never too far from a field or a farm in rural Manitoba. Even though we grew up in town, my sister and I spent many years handing tools to our dad as he fixed tractor after tractor.  We would go all over, wherever his skill and expertise were needed.  Sometimes we had to wait in the truck, sometimes we were on tool duty, but sometimes we would sneak off and explore.  I loved exploring.  Everything was so different from what we had in our yard.  There’s always something interesting waiting to be found on a farm or in a field, from old tractors to abandoned houses to wheat stretching to the sky.  I still love spending an evening making our way down a gravel road, trying to remember where we’ve been. www.plumphoto.ca Instagram @plum_photo

WH IT NE Y L IG HT STRONG BADGER COFFEEHOUSE 679 SARGENT AVENUE MONDAY-WEDNESDAY 7:30AM-6PM THURSDAY/FRIDAY 7:30AM-8PM SATURDAY 9PM-8PM

The blue fingerprint of Lake Winnipeg is a symbol of Manitoba’s natural beauty and of Manitoban’s relationship to the landscape. Diverse communities use the lake for food, industry, recreation and power. But the balance of a lake ecosystem is easily tipped. Excess nutrients from farms and sewage threaten to suffocate life and enable algae blooms; the invasive zebra mussel can overwhelm habitats; and the impact of climate change on seasonal patterns looms, for example. This show features photos from an ongoing project that follows these issues, investigating the complex relationship we, the people around its shores, have with Lake Winnipeg.

Abby Matheson Photography In 2007, I was walking around Seoul, South Korea for an afternoon when I realized almost 7 hours had passed since I last checked the time. I had been on a day-long adventure taking pictures of the most amazing people and scenes. I realized that there was a deeper level to my love of photography that I needed to explore. Since then, I have been drawn to documentary-style, street photography. I love the sincerity of it. I meet interesting people all the time, and everyone has an amazing story whether they believe it or not. You never know the weight of people’s experiences until you catch them in a vulnerable moment. This is my first year in Flash Photo Fest and I look forward to being inspired!

LE SLE Y N A KONECHNY BOUTIQUE ANYA 88 ALBERT STREET SUNDAY + MONDAY CLOSED TUESDAY-SATURDAY 11AM-6PM

Lesley Nakonechny is a graphic designer, artist and photo-enthusiast based out of Winnipeg. She fell in love with cyanotype a few years ago and never looked back. The process dates back to 1842 which uses sunlight to expose a negative to create a positive print. On occasion, Lesley ‘tones’ her cyanotypes with tea to create beautiful sepia effects. ‘The Creature that Escaped the Nursing Home’ are a series of new prints that present a whimsical character staged in various situations. Though the creature is only made of everyday objects, the work aims to have us reflect on our own identities and the stories we leave on others.

Sandeep’s flirtation with the camera first started at a young age when he snuck away with his dads camera, a Minolta X-700, & went to explore the wilds of his childhood home. His true love affair with photography came about on safari in exotic Southern Ontario where he captured the most amazing photographs this side of the Eramosa River. Unfortunately, upon returning from the unforgiving wilderness, the strap of his camera tore asunder & all his shots were lost. He’s been on a quest to capture that lost magic ever since. www.sarvambodhi.com Instagram @SarvamBodhi

BILL T H EUNISSEN THE VILLAGE DINER 510 SARGENT AVENUE MONDAY-SATURDAY 8AM-8PM SUNDAY 8AM-4PM

Originally from Swan River, now living in Winnipeg, Bill is an avid, enthusiastic, amateur photographer, who seldom leaves home without at least one camera. Sometimes going out with a plan (knowing where and what to shoot), but mostly just wandering about, where anything can become a potential subject. You never know what you’ll see. Quite often, taking several photos of the same subject in different seasons, or time of day, to take advantage of different lighting. Whether wandering neighbourhoods of Winnipeg, or out in the country, photos are waiting to be shot! Starting photography before digital cameras, Bill slowly became proficient in photography, but one had to wait for the film to be exposed, wait for developing and were limited by roll size. Digital photography offers immediacy to see photos, and re-shots or adjustment can be made right away, and you can literally take 1000’s of shots on one memory card, making it much more satisfying to go out and shoot.

For the last several years, Bill has been making calendars and greeting cards, from photos taken on these outings. This was started by making calendars for his Elbow Lake fishing crew, and expanded from there. A former member of the Manitoba Camera Club, over the years Bill has had several photos make the grade, and be shown at the Red River Ex Photo Salon
