Toronto Archives photography exhibition provides a collected view of the city
The City of Toronto Archives has mounted a new exhibition of more than 70 photographs of places and people in Toronto. ‘A Collected View: Ten Years of Photography Acquisitions, 1995 - 2005’ features photographs donated by some of Toronto’s renowned photographers. The exhibition runs from April 27 to September 16.

“The photographs speak candidly of our urban experience by focusing on the city’s geography, as well as specific relevant issues such as homelessness, public housing, feminism, architecture/urban planning, amalgamation, arts and culture, labour, and immigrant life,” said exhibition curator and archivist, Steve MacKinnon. “Included in the exhibition are photographs of the Distillery District, the Don River, portraits of prominent Toronto individuals and a series of photographs of Toronto’s Italian community in the 1970s, which together provide a diverse perspective on Toronto.”

The exhibition features works by 17 photographers: Robert Burley, Robin Collyer, Steven Evans, Debra Friedman, Pamela Harris, David Hlynsky, Vid Ingelevics, Geoffrey James, Michel Lambeth, Brenda Liu, Peter MacCallum, Steve Payne, Vincenzo Pietropaolo, Gerald Pisarzowski, Gilberto Prioste, John Reeves, and Marcus Schubert.

Admission to the exhibition is free and is open to the public Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (closed Saturdays in July and August).

The City of Toronto Archives is at 255 Spadina Rd., just south of Casa Loma and a short walk north from the Dupont subway station.
