> DESCRIPTION

Lead and Light explores twenty-seven years of hand-printed, hand-bound photography books published by Toronto’s Lumiere Press. The press, launched in 1986 by Canadian photographer Michael Torosian, has produced twenty-two limited edition volumes to date, on a diverse array of photographers including Paul Strand, Edward Steichen, Aaron Siskind, and Edward Burtynsky. Using material selected from the press archives—from manuscripts to maquettes, as well as original prints by major twentieth-century photographers—the exhibition focuses on the creative and intellectual processes by which Lumiere Press publications are researched, designed, and meticulously produced.

This exhibition and accompanying publication have been produced by second-year students in the Photographic Preservation and Collections Management Master of Arts programme at Ryerson University, Toronto, under the direction of Professor David Harris.

With special thanks to the generous support of the Howard and Carole Tanenbaum Family Charitable Foundation.
