VOYEUR [V] NOCTURNE | TRUNK Gallery Press Release ProjeKt [A]







Amyn Nasser’s Voyeur Nocturne is a photographic celebration of Vancouver better known as the “City of Glass”, where the Winter Olympic Games are being held. With its high population density relative to most other North American cities, urban planning in Vancouver is characterized by high-rise residential and mixed-use development in the city centre as an alternative to sprawl. Glass condominium towers dominate the skyline and have been credited in contributing to the city’s high rankings in livability. Amyn Nasser has effectively captured this ‘feel’ unique to and defining of Vancouver where each layer symbolizes the excitement and vibrancy of inner city life. If windows are the eyes to the soul, can the same be said for the soul of a city?
The Voyeur Nocturne series resulted from a 10 month long project taking the photographer to different viewpoints across the city; many of the most spectacular shots are a product of careful planning and consideration. Reflections present both opportunity and challenge; windows aglow invite the viewer in. As evening comes and the lights go on, a routine scene quickly becomes something with character and mood. Voyeur Nocturne will close Monday, March 15, 2010.
Amyn Nasser’s accreditations and accolades extend internationally. From Paris to New York to Dubai, Nasser has been an established international fashion and celebrity photographer for over 25 years with editorials in Vogue, Vogue Homme, Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, Elle. The Voyeur Nocturne series was the only photography chosen to officially hang at the Olympic Village as chosen by ArtConsultant, Miriam Aroeste. It was also accredited with an Honorable Mention at the LUCIE Pilsner Urquell International Photography Awards. In addition, Amyn was accredited by the Photography Master Cup -International Color Awards for both his nude and portrait work.
