D.R. Cowles
Illuminating Morocco: The Architectural Photographs of D.R. Cowles

April 11–May 12, 2007
Ryerson Gallery
80 Spadina Ave, Ste 305

Montreal artist D.R. Cowles offers a fascinating
view into the architecture of North Africa through
photographs made between 1993 and 2003. Taken
with an 8 x 10 inch view-camera and printed on
printing-out paper, his images serve as cultural
documents of a region in flux. These luminous
prints consider the domestic and religious
architecture of two cultures in Morocco, elegiac
images of recently vanished Jewish communities
and the delicate artisanal forms found in Islamic
architecture.

Curated by students in the Curation and Conservation course, School of Image Arts.
