HOW ARE YOU

Community. An ideal community has a history of coinciding with change and progression, a mix of age groups and cultures, friends, supporters, peers, mentors and collaborators. It has a mixture of people, nature and amenities that aid in feeling open, safe and comfortable to be as you are. Strength in a community can be built through the sharing truthful expression of one’s self.

The street is an environment where an ideal community can thrive, but is becoming a place where it seems like random human connection between strangers is not necessarily forthcoming or even safe. The only way people on the street could feel comfortable and really let their guard down in order to connect one on one would be through isolation. To explore this notion Fama needed to create a safe space to take people away from the chaos and people surrounding them yet keep them on the street.

Vancouver street photographer Foncie Pulice's body of work meets with the connection and community he built by giving people a piece of history with each snapshot he took. Fama was asked by curator's Julie Lee and Katie Huisman to create a body of work that was a response to Pulice's work for showing alongside Vancouver photographer's Lincoln Clarkes, John Godlsmith and Brian Howell during Capture Photography Festival at The Museum Of Vancouver. She hoped to use photography within the community and the street to capture human connection and the exact moment where her subject allowed their true self and vulnerability to show.

As Fama's response to Pulice’s photo’s of passersby in Vancouver’s downtown districts, on Main Street's 2013 Car Free Day, she set up a pop-up photo-studio in a Boler outside The Acorn restaurant. Interested passersby were invited to remove their shoes, enter the serene environment and engage. Three intentional portraits were taken, first a straight-up, passport style portrait, followed by one with eyes closed and a third portrait was taken after Fama asked the question:

“How are you?”
