Urban Sites: Five Toronto Photographers |
| || ||
The current Market Gallery exhibition documents Toronto through the eyes and
talents of five contemporary photographers. "Urban Sites: Five Toronto
Photographers" represents different approaches to the photographic medium.
Andrew Danson's imagery is taken from Queen Street. His images, which progress
through seven generations from digital video to gallery wall, are an
exploration of process and the new media.
Ruth Kaplan's photographs explore social bonding and fellowship within a
variety of communities in Toronto.
Elaine Ling's images witness that in every corner of this city, cryptic
messages enlighten us with the turn-of-the-century philosophies, media slogans
and chants of our youth.
Vincenzo Pietropaolo's photo essay, "Praying in the Streets," explores public
manifestations of spirituality by documenting various religious rituals in the
Marcus Schubert's series of images and text focuses on the redevelopment of
lands beneath Toronto's Gardiner Expressway.
This exhibition was produced in part with the assistance of the Canada Council
for the Arts Millennium Fund.
Urban Sites: Five Toronto Photographers is on display until June 24.
