Burlington Photographer Wins Unique Competition
Announcement made at gala exhibition and auction held in support of Breast Cancer Support Services
Gilmour was one of twelve professional photographers who each in turn spent one hour working alone in the same location, with the same model, using one camera, one lens, and one roll of film. Organizers processed the film and selected the best shot by each photographer. At a gala event held yesterday evening at Spencer’s at the Waterfront, large prints of the twelve selected images were displayed anonymously, assessed by judges, and after the announcement of the winner, sold in a silent auction. All proceeds from the event went to Burlington’s Breast Cancer Support Services (http://www.breastcancersupport.org/)
“I loved the challenge presented by this competition,”
The location used by the competitors was 270 Sherman (http://www.270sherman.ca), a renovated vintage industrial mill and office complex in East Hamilton frequently used as a setting by film and TV production companies. The photographers were given access to a rustic and cavernous 30,000 square foot open interior space lined with glass block windows. Each was assigned a one hour slot during the weekend of March 2 and 3. Katya Dabic was the model who posed almost non-stop for six hours twice over the course of the two consecutive days.
