Face to Face with Canada - A Nation at Work

This is the title of an exhibition about the WorkSpace Canada Project that will be opening soon in Downtown Toronto. Thanks to the kind collaboration with Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts / the Documentary Media Research Centre, it was possible to set up a show which is representing a decade of my documentary production in Canada. All photographs on display are original gelatin silver prints made in my own darkroom facility. Some of them were just recently coming out of the drying press, as there are for instance the first 2016 photographs, depicting people from Nunavut or the Canadian Navy. Due to the spatial conditions it will be a very compact exhibition. Nonetheless the show is taking the viewer on a unique journey throughout the Canadian provinces, offering lots of inside views to a great variety of work lives.

I would particularly like to thank the curator of this exhibition, Don Snyder, who is also my long-time mentor for this project. Without his unbelievable commitment and support the show wouldn’t have been possible.

Face to Face with Canada will be running from Friday, September 1st, 2017 – Sunday, September 24th, 2017.
The opening takes place on Tuesday, September 5th from 6:30-8:30 pm.

Address: 1214 Queen Street West (in the Gladstone Hotel)
Toronto, ON

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend the opening. Due to budget restrictions I can’t make it to Toronto. I am very sorry for that but I still have to cope with the expenses of the 2016 production.
