This exhibition invites us to revisit the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson, known as the “eye of the century” for his role as a key witness to 20th-century history. For the first time, it reveals all the richness and complexity of his work and the varied nature of his career as a photographer, from his use of the Surrealist aesthetic to photo-reportage and his intimate, late style. As a result, its analysis of the artist’s work goes beyond the concept of the “decisive moment” that brought him fame.

Photography | Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, Toronto, Ontario, Canada | Thursday 1 May 2014 - Sunday 1 June 2014
Shaped by ancestry, society, and history, material belongings and body embellishments have always served to communicate an individual’s sense of self; clothing and possessions are the fundamental elements through which self-image is expressed. As an outward expression of one’s inner most sensibilities and subjectivities, people perform their identities and position themselves in relation to the world around them. Influencing how the self is represented and seen, photography plays a significant role in the social and cultural construction of identity.

Swedish photographer Dan Isaac Wallin loves old Polaroid films. His series‚ 'Steps on snow, dust on the lips' presents journeys from the places of his childhood. The images are mainly outdoor motifs from the countryside in Sweden and Israel. Dan Isaac Wallin prefers to work with a simple SX-70 or 4x5 inch large format camera, using long expired Polaroid films. Wallin gently and carefully treats and mistreats the films, while they are developing, until he gets the soft 'other-world' look. That is the signature style of his work. After making a high resolution scan he reproduces polaroids in a small edition.
