Photography and its culture – the way in which
images are
created and used – are subject, as many things
are, to cyclical
evolutions of birth, growth, entropy and renewal.
Photography
wields an enduring influence in our lives; it
contributes to our
understanding of the world around us, now more
then ever
before and is implicit in preserving our
individual and collective
experiences. Through a selection of photographic
images by ten
Canadian and international artists, Between Memory
and History:
From the Epic to the Everyday
probes relationships
that exist
between the intimate and the public, between
moments of
personal significance to events of global
resonance that affect
each one of us.
