Local photojournalists Lisa King and Kevin Hill have their first public exhibit on now at Small Ritual Coffee Society.
You have likely seen the couple's work in the pages of the Now, but the images on display at the coffee shop are all ones that have not been previously published. These photos are landscapes and atmospheric shots they have taken over the years that encompass local beach scenes, Prairie landscapes, a bird captured in flight and even the moment of disappoint, called "Unfunny" of an ice cream on the ground.
Small Ritual hosts new art each month and when the opportunity to display some of their work arose, Hill and King decided to seize the opportunity.
"We just had things we wanted to print and frame and share with other people," said King, who often shoots scenes in and around White Rock, where she grew up.
"Most of mine are from the Prairies," said Hill, who is originally from Saskatoon.
He and King met in the photojournalism program at Loyalist College, in Belleville, Ontario.
For this exhibit, Hill's images are shot with a digital camera, although he said he often prefers to use film when not shooting for work. King also uses film for her personal projects - expired film - because "you never know what you're going to get."
Sometimes the results are spectacular, such as her large print of a sunset on the train tracks along the White Rock waterfront.
Check out the images at Small Ritual Coffee Society, 1237 Johnston Rd., before July 19.
