TORONTO, June 19, 2015 /CNW/ -
Exhibition dates: June 26 – September 12, 2015
Reception: June 25, 5pm-8pm
This exhibition displays vintage prints made by Canadian photographers in the early and mid 20th century, a time when photography was mostly relegated to international salon exhibitions and prize medals were compensation for the lack of a market. In the early part of the medium's history, photographers mimicked conventions in painting to promote acceptance of photography as a "true art". By the outbreak of WWI, Americans, such as Paul Strand and Alfred Stieglitz, spearheaded a movement towards straight photography, but pictorial traditions remained influential in photographic circles through the 1950s.
This exhibition includes photographs made by these Canadian photographers:
Jessie Tarbox Beals; Jack Bunting; E. Haanel Cassidy; Otto Eaton; Rex Frost; Johan Helders; E.J. Hessin; J.H. Mackay; Allan Sangster; William Gordon Shields; Harry Waddle; Charles Devenish Woodley; and John Vanderpant
