Head Over To The Ryerson Image Centre

Posted by Dani on April 12, 2013

A extra dose of culture came to the city last fall when the Ryerson Image Centre opened. Their world-class collection includes Canadian business magnate Jim Pattison’s donation of historical photos from New York’s famed Black Star Agency, valued at over $100 million. This collection represents a photojournalistic history of the 20th century, and is a must-see for anyone interested in photography and related media.

Dedicated to the exhibition, research, study, and teaching of photography, this space always has a compelling series of exhibitions on the roster. Several new ones are opening May 1. I’m interested in seeing Here and There: Photography and Video Works on Immigration. Just look at this picture – it shows what looks like a typical conversation in my family. These two are probably just talking about what they want the women to make them for dinner. Or maybe the best way to trap the squirrel that just got into their brother-in-law’s attic. Something like that. I’ve seen this exact hand-gesturing conversation a thousand times.

Here’s an image from Arthur S. Goss: Works and Days, showing photography produced for City of Toronto departments and agencies early in the last century.

There’s something for everyone. And best of all, admission is free. It’s a perfect low-budget date idea, something a certain teenager in my life asked me about the other day.
