Capturing a Cultural Moment with Photographer Rennie Brown
Today we get to hang out at the legendary Sai Woo in Vancouver and talk with photographer Rennie Brown. I discovered Rennie’s work when his ‘Artist in Studio’ images started appearing on the instagram feeds of so many artists I know and love. These portraits are intimate and evocative and I just had to meet him.
Now let’s head to Sai Woo and listen in as Rennie and I talk about the magic of falling in love with his instamatic camera as a boy, and how his two current series are documenting a fragile moment in the evolution of both Chinatown and the Vancouver art studio scene.
