Mid-Century Icons: Architectural Photography from the Panda Collection

May 7–August 4, 2007
Eric Arthur Gallery
230 College St

Mid-Century Icons: Architectural Photography from
the Panda Collection explores the relationship
between architectural photography and the study
and practice of architecture; often it is the
first and
only impression we have of a building. Panda
Associates, a Canadian commercial photography
firm devoted to architecture, played a major role in
documenting the beginning and growth of Modern
architecture in Canada. The photographs on
display capture the postwar Canadian dream – a
sophisticated, leisurely and urbane lifestyle.

Curated by Linda Fraser and Dr. Geoffrey Simmins
