Summer Leigh
The Past is Never Far

May 7–September 17, 2017
Mackenzie House
82 Bond St

The Past is Never Far is a photographic series that explores many of the extraordinary changes Toronto has undergone over the last two centuries. Leigh presents the city in ways never seen before, juxtaposing traditional and modern technologies to compel the viewer to consider the relationship between past and present. As Leigh photographs Toronto today through the eyes of those who were here before, she invites one to realize the past is never far.
