The Documentary Tradition: Making Now Real
Opening reception Saturday, July 7 from 2:00 - 4:00 pm.
This exhibition is free and open to the public daily from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm in Emily Carr's Concourse Gallery.
As storytellers, photojournalists and documentary photographers create images, both still and moving, that record the history of our culture, evoking the momentous and the everyday circumstances of contemporary life. In recent decades, Photography, Photojournalism and the Documentary tradition have been transformed by digital technology; the dissemination of these images has radically increased to feed new modes of consumption.
Curated by Diane Evans.
