Photography. Unfiltered.

A photography show like no other. 

Nelson Mouëllic Studio presents Roll Call – a quarterly photography show that celebrates honest photography, and gives an unfiltered look at the photographic processes from some of Vancouver's finest photographers.

Roll Call is a fast paced, one-day event that pushes the boundaries of traditional analogue photography. By condensing what is traditionally a slow process into a single day format, photographers will be required to work quickly, creating imagery driven by impulse, while maintaining a sense of mindfulness to their work.

Volume 03: April 27th, 2018

On the morning of the show, ten photographers will each be given a roll of slide film and will have 8-hours to capture all 36 frames. Then, the rolls will be collected, processed, mounted, loaded into slide carousels, and projected that evening in their entirety without edits. Presenting every image captured, unedited, gives insight to how each photographer creates their images and how they approach their work.

Here's how it all goes down:

7:00 am Photographers pick-up their roll of film.
3:00 pm Film is sent for processing & mounting.
5:00 pm Slides are collected and loaded into projectors.
7:00 pm Showtime, baby!

John Lehman

John Lehmann is one of the top photojournalists in North America. He was, most recently, named Canadian photojournalist of the year in 2012, 2013 and 2014 and 2015.

Lehmann brings an array of talents to his work: the insatiable curiosity that marks all the best journalists; an artistry that sets his images apart from the billions of other pictures; a quiet intimacy and flair for inventiveness, which is what brings his work to life. Most of all, he is not simply a photographer, he is a visual journalist. And the principal that underpins everything is accuracy and honesty, both to the people he reports on and the readers to whom he reports.

Since 2001, Lehmann has been based in Vancouver and his bailiwick is Western Canada, vast ground he has covered from the Arctic to the remote reaches of British Columbia. His focus is vast. He covers breaking news and sports, and develops many short-term and longer-term feature visual projects. He has covered five Olympics, summer and winter, and international news such as the Boxing Day tsunami in Southeast Asia. Major projects include month-long assignments in both China and Russia.

Reema Ismail

Born in Vancouver and raised twenty minutes south, Reema Ismail uses photography to understand people better than she would know how to otherwise. Reema is in school for something entirely unrelated to photography and makes her money doing something also unrelated to photography, which is funny, because her photographs are what she uses to help people understand herself better than she’d know how to explain otherwise. She has also never spent more than a week further than half an hour away from an ocean.

Taylor applies a journalistic approach to her editorial and commercial work. Photography has taken her across South East Asia, through Patagonia, to South Africa. She’s walked across Scotland, and flew above the North West Territories. Closer to home, Taylor was recently part of the Canada C3 Expedition photographing along BC’s central coast on a retired icebreaker ship.

Maybe you?

In the effort of keeping Roll Call an open event that's accessible to everyone, we present the Tenth Roll. Yep, we want you to be our tenth shooter! At 6:30am on Friday we’ll announce the location of the 10th roll to our Instagram. Whoever is first to collect it, gets to shoot it, and have their work projected that evening!

P.s. Lace up your runners, this one won't be as easy to find as it was for Volume 02!

Venue

Our venue for Volume 03 of Roll Call is the iconic Roundhouse Community Arts Centre. Long admired for its straight-forward industrial beauty, the Roundhouse is a building of major historical significance to the City of Vancouver both from an architectural and social perspective. Originally the Roundhouse was comprised of a cluster of buildings whose function was to house and service the great steam locomotives of the day. The people who worked in these buildings were involved with the railway link that played a central part in the growth of Vancouver.
