Carte Blanche - Selected Photographers from the Book

Drawing from the more than 200 photographers featured in Carte Blanche, a groundbreaking book on Canada’s best photographers as selected by a jury of renowned arts professionals, this exhibition shows how Canadian photographers experience cultures around the world – and how they work within their own. From photojournalism in the bleakness of Haiti (Roger Lemoyne), the severity of the Ukraine (Donald Weber) and the toughness of Canada’s own Uranium City (Eamon MacMahon) to the gentler minutiae of daily living (Alain Paiement), musings on concepts of perception and memory (Jakub Dolejs) and observations on the way we treat our urban environment (Isabelle Hayeur), these photographers show global culture through comparisons and contrasts, by travelling and staying home, by constructing and documenting alike. Overall, this show encourages viewers to perceive edges and perforations of Canadian photography within an image-heavy global culture.
