Contact Photography Festival, Toronto

Every May, Toronto is host to the Contact Photography Festival where galleries, restaurants, museums, and public spaces are invited to host photo shows.

This year’s theme Pervasive Influence, explored the social and political consequences of the medium of photography, in a world devoted to the image.

The festival included many amazing outdoor site specific installations (like the Barbara Kruger above) and a phenomenal exhibition at the University of Toronto Arts Centre titled Through the Vanishing Point discussing the achievements and discourse of Marshal McLuhan in conjunction with a the photo show titled Brothel Without Walls.
