    a "must see" exhibition in Toronto

    this is the most extensive exhibition of well known LF photographers I have every encountered in Toronto

    it is a must see if you love photography
    closes March 10th

    an excerpt from the description

    "Embracing both pictures and documents, this exhibition ranges from Henry Fox Talbot to Eugene Atget, from Robert Frank to Ian Wallace and beyond, including particular emphasis on a handful of select modern photographers such as Bill Brandt, Manuel Alvarez Bravo, André Kertész, Man Ray, Aleksandr Rodchenko, and John Vanderpant."

    there are also several Edward Weston prints included (and Steichen, and Strand and Evans....). I could go on and on about the various images I have read about and now had the chance to see in person such as Strand's "Blind"....

    WOW
    An unbelievable collection of prints that make you feel you are inside a photo history book; the steerage, the blind woman, Pencil of Nature, even, to my pleasure, a Margaret Watkins and 100's of others
    FREE
    If you are anywhere in range, this is better than anything I have seen in my lifetime. Newhall's first History of Photography exhibit must have been like this.
    GO

    This is one of the best shows I have seen in Canada. If you can get to it, it is well worth it. Take your camera, the buildings on campus are great, and they dont mind a tripod.

    I am reviving this thread in case people want to get a second chance to see this exhibit. Apparently it will be shown at the AGO in 2015 ( not 2014 !).

    I just discovered this clip from the Dec 3 2013 edition of the Toronto Star (on-line of course..)
    here is the link:

    http://www.thestar.com/entertainment...otography.html

    The Art Gallery of Ontario has acquired a collection of 268 historical photographs from Toronto’s Ann and Harry Malcolmson, among the foremost collectors of historical photography in the country.

    The acquisition was made possible both through a donation of works from longtime AGO donors the Malcolmsons and a private cash donation.

    The Malcolmsons’ collection, which includes such names as Eugčne Atget, André Kertész, Edward Weston, Man Ray, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Canadian John Vanderpant, was the subject of a substantial exhibition at the University of Toronto Art Centre in January 2012.

    The works acquired by the AGO will go on display next June until January 2015.

    Did they ever put out a catalog of the collection?

    to date I have not seen a catalog
    usually it is museums that publish catalogs of their major exhibitions
    now that this collection is in the hands of the AGO and they are planning an exhibition
    the odds of a catalog being published have just gone up….
    they have done some very nice catalogs in the past like the Sudek exhibition last year
