Announcing the release of James Nizam’s most recent image: The Obliquity of the Ecliptic. The work was commissioned as a cover image for Capture Photography Festival 2017, which runs April 1-28 in Vancouver.

Over the course of his career, Nizam’s work has investigated the imaginative possibilities of photography in living spaces. In the Dwelling Series (2006), he used long-exposure times to create striking geometrical images with light in abandoned homes. The Anteroom Series (2007) transformed rooms in abandoned homes into present-day camera obscuras, capturing the result through photographs. In Memorandums (2011), Nizam’s work gained critical attention when he created temporary sculptures with household objects in an apartment of a social housing building marked for demolition.

Most recently, Nizam’s work continues to place the viewer within the walls of private and lived spaces, employing carefully executed demolitions to draw optical geometrics for his audience.

Capture Photography Festival was launched in 2013 in Vancouver. The annual not-for-profit festival strives to celebrate photography as an art form and engage the community in fresh dialogue around its role in contemporary art. This year, over  70 Vancouver galleries and community spaces are included in its Selected and Open Exhibition Programs.
