About"In a city like Vancouver that is renowned for its photography, it takes something really special to catch our eye in this crowded arena. Jennilee Marigomen’s work looks at what much photography produced in this city does: urban spaces, as well as our relationship with and the tension between the natural world and the built environment. But her images contain a blatantly beautiful poetic whimsy, as well as the sense that you are privy to a moment which is simultaneously ordinary and extraordinary, distinguishing her from the pack. Although Jennilee works with found scenes, stumbling upon what she captures with her lens, her photographs are rigorous in their formal qualities of composition, and painterly in their balance of form and colour as well as her masterful portrayal of light.
