> DESCRIPTION

Organized by the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art and the National Gallery of Canada. Presented in conjunction with the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival

Spanning five decades, from the thirties to the eighties, Street View reflects the development of street photography as a record of city life and the shifting social and economic conditions within it. Drawn from the collection of the National Gallery of Canada, this exhibition highlights the work of seven photographers whose seminal visions helped to describe the urban landscape in the 20th century. Their contribution to the canon of street photography is unmistakable as is their ongoing influence on the work of contemporary image-makers. From scenes of gritty human drama to formal compositions of urban architecture, these photographs evocatively frame public space and its inhabitant.
