CONTACT Photography Festival

This week - I wanted to do a little bit of public service for those of you in the Toronto area. There is a little more than a week to check out the CONTACT Photography Festival. The festival, which started on Apr/28, will be wrapping up at the end of May.

There are a few notable events that have happened, or are still happening, during the festival:

  • The Scotiabank Photography Award this year was awarded to Shelly Niro. Check out her website.
  • Last’s years award winner Suzy Lake, has a free exhibit at the Ryerson Image Centre. Her exhibit actually runs until Aug/13. She’s also giving a free artist’s talk on May/24 at 7pm (also at the Ryerson Image Centre). Currently, only rush seating is available.
  • Numerous smaller exhibitions are located all around town. Have a look at this map. There's sure to be a small venue near you and many of the exhibits go on past the festival end-date, so you can probably still catch them later.

Get out there and see some great images!

Feature Photograph of the Week - Victoria Harbour

 This is a view of Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong from the top of Victoria Peak. This view is from the Hong Kong side overlooking the Stonecutter's bridge which connects Tsing Yi island to Kowloon. It's been exactly a year since I took this photo - and I want to say hi to the many friends I had the pleasure of meeting and travelling with in China!
