Face Off for YK’s Photo Community

The rules were simple. Using only one camera, one lens and one light source, 23 photographers were given 20 minutes to shoot a pair of models they hadn’t met at the former Hudson’s Bay warehouse in Old Town – a location they were made aware of only minutes before the shoot. It was a challenge in being creative and thinking quickly with limited resources. At an exhibition in late November, more than 200 people turned out to Twist Resto-Lounge to see all the photographers work in print and vote for their favourite pair, as well as the top two individual photos. The event was organized by Pat Kane Photo and the aRTLeSS Collective and sponsored by Roy’s Audio Video and EDGE YK magazine. The models for the competition were Brian Collins and Jaimee Imrie, who spent 14 hours in below freezing temperatures posing for each photographer. Although everyone produced great work, here are the winners, as chosen by the people who came out and cast their ballot for YK’s first-ever FACE OFF competition. To see the rest of the competitors’ photos and watch a behind-the-scenes video of the contest, visit edgeyk.ca in the month of March.
