Danny Chan Can : 2013 Canstruction Vancouver’s Photographer

Mr Potato Can — Photo by Danny Chan

The annual Canstruction competition is back with an exhibition of their amazing sculptures made entirely of canned food (which afterwards are donated to Greater Vancouver Food Banks for distribution to community emergency feeding programs) at the Four Seasons Hotel, the Pacific Center Rotunda and the HSBC Pendulum Gallery in downtown Vancouver. VFS Digital Media Specialist Danny Chan is their appointed photographer for the event.

Last year, Danny Chan took some photos for our OOMPH! piece, and after seeing his shots, the Director of Brand l Co-Chair Canstruction Vancouver, Scott Gray contacted him and asked permssion to use some of his photography in their promotional material, which then evolved into using his photos as the basis for their innovative calendar.

This year, Canstruction is going all Danny Chan all the time, for the entire competition. You can see some of his work on the voting page (personally, I like Mr Potato CAN), as well as in this article by the Vancouver Sun about the competition. But of course, Danny has supplied us with some great “behind the scenes” examples.

Nice work, Danny — and congratulations! We look forward to seeing the next calendar edition!
