Patti Gower
Why Am I Here?

May 1–31, 2006
Junction, The - Panache Art Gallery & Custom
2946 Dundas St W

To witness human suffering and survival is a
responsibility taken on by each photojournalist.
Arriving nearly one year after the tragedy to
document the lives of the survivors, Patti Gower
is confronted with her own purpose of being there.
In an ode to the critical writing of Susan Sontag,
Patti Gower walks through the Tsunami story,
exploring her own journey in a role, coined often
by Sontag, as voyeur.

Large screen projection May 6, 9pm.
