About this series: That Time, That Place
This exhibition features select photographs from two recent series: Buzzing Lights: The Fading Neon Landscape in North America and The Last Summer at Coney Island.
Mixed in with key images from those collections are snapshots taken while driving, dancing and dreaming between destinations. Together, they are a portrait of the disappearing face of our cities; a song for ghosts that lingered long enough to be captured by this wandering photographer.
Originated in Paris, France 2002, Nuit Blanche is annual event that brings contemporary art to the masses in public spaces. Toronto was the first North American city in 2005 to fully replicate the Paris model, and has inspired similar celebrations throughout North America, including San Francisco, New York, Miami and Chicago.
This 12-hour event transforms neighbourhoods in the city into temporary exhibitions for all-night discoveries by the general public.
