This exhibition brings together a collection of award-winning photographs from some of the world’s most promising new artists working in contemporary image making. They present a story of our current world, as told through their photographic lens. They expand our traditional view of photography as they expand the boundaries of the medium, in diverse and unexpected ways, by incorporating such varied practices as documentary, sculpture, traditional craft, theatre and storytelling.

Kerry Shaw (above) is an established commercial photographer living in LA. She is an avid surfer, and this is her personal, fine art work; a series of waves she has been documenting from her travels around the globe. The photograph above, is a digital composit of approximately 8 or 9 images, photographed during a single day, at the same location, and then stitched together into this ultimate moment.

Kristin Sjaarda “Mount Forest”, 2016
From the series The Kitchen Window (de keuken finster)

This photograph, by Toronto artist Kristin Sjaarda is a personal expression of the world outside her back door, and a series that honours the legacy of Dutch women in her family who have come before her. Kristin Sjaarda's photos are always shot in the context of home and life, namely her kitchen and garden. Her subjects are often the flowers she tends in her city garden: the dahlias, roses, zinnias, magnolia, tulips and spurge she watches bloom from her kitchen window. Kristin often uses in the photos items from generations of Dutch women in her family that have been passed down to her from her mother. Vermeer was an innkeeper and the father of 10 children and painted his master pieces in one room within his own house. Just as the Dutch masters worked with the domestic view that was all around them, Kristin has taken as her subject, the life that is right in front of her. She only uses the natural window light in her kitchen to create her work, where the breakfast dishes may be piled in the sink, and a morning of domestic chores awaits her. Perhaps in this way art and life are seamless and integrated.

The artists in this exhibition provide a window into the world of contemporary international and Canadian photography as fine art, and provide a gateway to a greater understanding of our unique and varied culture as Canadians.

Join us in exploring the way these next generation of image-makers are helping shape our world, and our place in within it. The exhibition will include two grand-format photographs presented as wall murals in the main lobby at First Canadian Place. A special thank you to Jeff Uzbalis and 3M for their generous support!

Please call the FCP Arts and Events Office at 416.862.6858 to ensure that the exhibition is available for viewing.
