Corkin Gallery Ryoko Suzuki

The Corkin Gallery in Toronto’s Distillery district not only features remarkable photographers, but the exhibition space itself is an architectural delight.

The structure in the historic distillery retains the exposed brick enhancing the effect of the high ceilings with frosted glass walls.

The recent exhibition for Contact, featured Japanese photographer Ryoko Suzuki who as a feminist artist critiques the fetishized japanime doll heroine body with her own face. Remarkably skilled the juxtaposition is uncanny and well emphasizes the point of the life sized selfportraits.
