Where Toronto brings you a new image for each day of the 2013 Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival, which runs throughout May with exhibitions at more than 175 venues across the city.
Today’s top Contact Photography Festival pick:
Photo: Henry Moore, Much Hadham, England, 1966-72
Artist: Arnold Newman
Exhibition: From May 2 to October 20, the Art Gallery of Ontario highlights its photographic collection—which began with the 1977 purchase of Newman’s collage portrait shown above—with an exhibition entitled “Light My Fire: Some Propositions about Portraits and Photography.” As its title suggests, the show considers a number of philosophical and artistic propositions about image making, and features more than 200 works by such photographers as Edward Steichen, Richard Avedon, Liz Magor and many others.
