Ancient Splendour

April 22–May 31, 2016
Dylan Ellis Gallery
1840 Danforth Ave

Ancient Splendour is a photographic journal of Glitz’s ongoing exploration of UNESCO World Heritage sites. Glitz’s aim is to help others see the magnificent past and to instill the idea that these locations are worth the effort and cost of preservation. Much has been lost forever, a result of both natural events and activities such as progress, tourism, and terrorism.

This exhibition honours the past through the use of two alternative printing formats: platinum palladium and tri-colour gum over palladium. The extraordinary combination of images from historically significant UNESCO World Heritage sites with these alternative printing processes creates unique permanent prints that will withstand the test of time for future generations to see.
