In an article written by Celio Barreto in The Culture Trip Canada, features the gallery's current exhibition "Canadian Modernism, A Group Exhibition: John Vanderpant & Contemporaries" as one of Toronto's must-see art exhibits in summer 2015.

"Why is it a must-see? Canadian photography that broke out of the pictorial box. Photography wasn’t always considered an art form. When the medium first began to take hold in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, awards were given out to talented photographers, in lieu of a traditional art market"

Gallery Artist Sunil Gupta in Group Exhibition "I Am A Camera" at FotoFest Houston


Opening tomorrow July 9th at FotoFest Houston is the group exhibition "I Am A Camera" featuring work by gallery artist Sunil Gupta.

"I Am a Camera is about self-representation. Queer communities self-identify across a broad spectrum of sexuality, gender roles, culture and politics. It is a varied and diverse population that resists generalization and traditional, normative expectations. As such, LGBTQ communities have defined themselves on their own terms. I Am a Camera is an exhibition of artists doing just that.

The artists in I Am A Camera are exploring a number of humanist themes, including relationships, self-realization and determination, and community and space building. Their works encompass traditional black & white photography, contemporary staged photography, video and installation work. They represent the spectrum of sexual identification - gay, lesbian, transgendered, and queer-allied.

I Am A Camera is curated by Steven Evans, FotoFest Executive Director and Curator"

A Great Article About Robert Frank From The New York Times Magazine

Isn't It Wonderful Just To Be Alive, 1971 © Robert Frank /

We recommend reading the July 2nd, 2015, New York Times Magazine article "The Man Who Saw America" by Nicholas Dowidoff. A thorough read offering a great overview of the life of the preeminent living photographer Robert Frank.

"Frank has always been a picture-maker unconcerned with his own appearance, and sitting quietly beside the streetcar window, he wore the usual faded work shirt, frayed pants and one too many mornings of stubble. A sturdy man who never uses socks, a winter hat or gloves, Frank is now 90, and in the cool Swiss air, he had on a new blue down coat. His melancholy eyes rarely betray anything, but as he gazed out at the city of his youth, there was the sense of a man wary, defended, skeptical, yet willing to be engaged. In his pocket he carried an Olympus camera."
