20x200

last week i was reminded of 20x200. i am warming up to the notion of photography as wall art. i have always been more of a fan of prints, paintings or illustrations, but now i'm thinking a large scale photograph would be fantastic as well.


i'm intrigued by luke stephenson's white and grey canary #1

i guess it just has to be the right photograph. i would love a stormy landscape, similar to this one by joseph o holmes, but maybe without the people and dogs...



can anyone recommend any photographers you think i'd like? (especially if they are local to vancouver)

I love 20X200 but every time I like something from there it's sold out. Just recently I truly liked a piece enough to buy it and it was sold out just hours after release. But of course when I get their email while sitting at my desk, I usually pass.

I like Jason Nocito.

I think he splits time between NYC & Van.

I can't think of anyone specifically from Vancouver...I only know skate and snow photographers. But I have been known to commission them to do other work.

20x200 is great!
it's true sometimes things sell out really quickly but that adds a little to the thrill of the purchase!
