APRIL 24 TO AUGUST 30  Everyday life gains new layers of meaning when it’s viewed through the camera lens of acclaimed British photographer Martin Parr. As part of May’s Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival, Parr, a member of the prestigious Magnum photo agency, blew up his images of one of our most mundane activities, eating, and installed them for the rest of the summer at this country’s busiest air-travel hub. Fascinating, perhaps even a tad embarrassing, the pictures represent both a unique way by which Parr documents his travels as well as a satirical questioning of Western consumers’ relationship with food.  —Anna Marszalek
