About

In 2010 we handed out 100 cameras asking participants to photograph what 'made in vic' meant to them. We want to do it again in 2018.

In 2010, we handed out 100 cameras and asked: "What does made in Victoria mean to you?".

What We Did Last Time

The cameras were more than just a a means to an end. We wanted everyone to be able to participate - regardless of age, knowledge, or skill. Film meant each shot counted and you only got 27(ish) frames. It limited the submissions so no one participant could dominate the overall collection. The single use nature of the cameras was a parallel to the experiences being captured. No chance to edit or redo. Point and Shoot and hope you got it right. Take a look, madeinvic.ca.

What We Want To Do

In 2010 we handed the cameras out at random. We received about half of them back. Frankly, it was more than we expected. This time we aren't going to limit ourselves. In fact, in addition to individuals who want to participate with their own camera we're reaching out to local business. Businesses who are connected to, or are, local producers. We've also selected specific locations to leave cameras for people to use. 

Ultimately we'd like to keep rolling this forward by playing with the format but not the medium. Follow along on instagram: @madeinvic100cameras .

Why We Want To Do It Again (and again, and again, and again)  

We were more than surprised at (and in love with) the images that were returned. Our favourites were like seeing behind the curtain, or being allowed into a private club for just a glimpse. Our other favourites were portraits, city-scapes, personal stories, cherry blossoms, and time capsules that could be decades old.

We're also suckers for the magic of light leaks. The cameras had to travel, and some got more love than others. The more love, the move leaks. Digital is nice, but film can be magic. ;)

What We Need

We need to pay for the cameras. (And then to get the film processed.)

Risks and challenges

The risk is that the cameras won't come back. That's why we're just giving out a single use camera. Our experience in 2010 tells us that isn't going to happen and that we should get most of the cameras back. :)
