The Built World Around Us: A Juried Photography Exhibit

See photographs that capture the built environment south of the Fraser River.

This juried exhibit, presented by Surrey Photography Club, invited members of the public to explore the places we live, work, and play in. The selected works convey the variety of built spaces in our region, as well as the breadth of techniques that local photographers use.

Visitors will see iconic structures of the Fraser Valley, such as the SkyBridge or the recently damaged White Rock pier. Some images present a slice of Surrey’s history, such as decaying barns, homes, and malls. Other works focus on the contemporary glass and steel constructions in Central Surrey. Yet more significant is the way each photographer lends their creative eye to their subject.

Many of the submissions show familiar scenes in a different light. The exhibiting photographers capture extraordinary details in our suburban and urban landscapes, abstracting them to the point of unrecognizability or emphasizing the connections between different shapes and forms.
