EXHIBITION | Ontario, National Gallery of Canada, The Extended Moment: Fifty Years of Collecting Photographs

The Canadian Institute of Photography of Canada’s National Gallery features 175 photos selected from its archive in an exhibition titled the “Extended Moment”.

The exhibition aims to create a visual synergy that provokes ideas by juxtaposing historical photographs with recent works.

From processes as diverse as daguerreotype to digital, tintypes to inkjet prints, and monochrome to highly saturated colour, the exhibition looks at photography as an ever-evolving medium.

Julia Margaret Cameron, Weegee, Ed Burtynsky, Lynne Cohen and Spring Hurlbut showcases the ability to capture and reflect the zeitgeist of that time, while the exhibition presents a record of the photographers’ seen and unseen worlds.

The exhibition can be viewed until September 16, 2018.
