Light and shadows give weight to narrative, define principles, and offer perspective on everyday encounters.

Desgagnés’ long-exposure photographs during movies light up Montreal theatres. Montreal’s Studio L’Archipel: Christian Fleury’s Terroir are serene snippets of nature rich in natural light. Lecompte and Fafard’s Ephemeral Monuments reveals intimacy reduced to ashes in California fires. Brocard witnesses the smartphone’s long-evolving relationship to photography. Murzin’s Harry Was a Cow Caller is an intimate look at Ontario farmers’ plight of dwindling family farms. Newlands set the standard and raised the bar with his insightful 1960s vintage collection documenting social change while Canada was coming of age. Curated by Fay Athari and Dolores Gubasta.
