Songs of the Future: Canadian Industrial Photographs, 1858 to Today

decoration20 Aug. 2011|29 April 2012

As railroad tracks were laid and bridges were built to allow access to remote Canadian forests and mineral-rich territories, photographers followed, as they did when mining and lumber interests developed. Industrialization has undeniably shaped the Canadian landscape – for better and for worse. The photographs on display in this exhibition picture this process and are in themselves a documentary of Canada’s history and the history of photography. On show are more than 100 photographs by William Notman, Alexander Henderson, Richard Maynard, J.C.M. Hayward, John Vanderpant, E. Haanel Cassidy, George Hunter, Bill Vazan, Ralph Greenhill, Geoffrey James, Edward Burtynsky, Peter MacCallum, Steven Evans, Jesse Boles, and Isabelle Hayeur.
