This May, Toronto beckons photographers and lovers of the medium to once again make a pilgrimage to one of the largest photography festivals in the world.

Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival is an annual event in May with well over 1500 Canadian and international artists and photographers exhibiting at more than 175 venues throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Founded as a not-for-profit organization in 1997 and now a charitable organization, the Festival is devoted to celebrating, and fostering the art and profession of photography, through a diverse range of programmes.

As a leading proponent of photography, the Festival increases exposure and recognition for local, Canadian and international artists and is committed to advancing knowledge, creativity and innovation in photography. It stimulates excitement and discussion among a diverse audience that has grown to over 1.8 million. CONTACT is the largest photography event in the world, and a premiere cultural event in Canada.

The launch of the festival will take place at Toronto’s Museum of Contemporary Art on May 2nd. Participating artists will be in attendance along with DJ Brendan Canning, Grolsch beer and wine provided by Stratus Vineyards.

Edward Weston, Nude, 1936

For great coverage of PHotoEspana events it pays to subscribe to Le Journal de la Photographie:

Harry Callahan (1912-1999) and Edward Weston (1886-1958) are two of the great American masters of photography. Both developed intense and long careers in which they dealt amply with the nude. The exhibition He, She, It features a selection of eighty pieces that moves away from the topics of erotic photography.

Unlike those pieces that seek to induce desire through the image, the work of Weston and Callahan transforms desires into images. Both artists love their models, who are their own wives or lovers. The pictures become an erotic expression filled with subjectivity and affection; hence, the act of shooting the photos is similar to lovemaking, as it entails a connection with the loved one through vision.

From the Nicole Straus Public Relations firm we have received a write-up on the AIPAD exhibition results. Judging by the exhibitor comments it was a great year for sales of photographs. In addition photographers received a great viewing audience of stars, collectors and curators:

Attendance at the fair, which is the longest-running and foremost exhibition of fine art photography, increased to 11,500 – a record high for the Show.

Eighty-two of the world’s leading fine art photography galleries presented a wide range of museum-quality work, and a new booth design complemented the presentations. The show featured contemporary, modern, and 19th-century photographs, as well as photo-based art, video, and new media.

AIPAD also drew a wide range of curators from such institutions as The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; International Center for Photography, New York; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York: The Morgan Library and Museum, New York; The Philadelphia Museum of Art; Los Angeles County Museum of Art; The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; The Art Institute of Chicago;  Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art; Detroit Institute of Arts; George Eastman House, Rochester, NY; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Washington, DC; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; New Orleans Museum of Art; National Gallery of Canada, Ontario; Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam; and Tate Modern, London.

Quite a show indeed …

The Last Goodbye, by Susan Burnstine, courtesy of the artist.

The Last Goodbye, by Susan Burnstine

Found at the Catherine Couturier Gallery exhibit, this print entices the viewer’s attention with its whirlpool of layered mystery.

The print itself is indeed part of the impact and the digital recreation unfortunately does not do it justice.

It was our favorite print of the thousands presented at the AIPAD show.

As noted by Jonathan Curiel:

The undeniable beauty of Burnstine’s black-and-white photos, and their connection to dreams brought on by family tragedy, give them an intensity that is both intellectual and visceral. The acclaimed Brazilian photographer Sebastião Salgado can have the same effect on people, though his work captures outward scenes while Burnstine’s also conjures an internal world.

"I need the pictures to emulate what I’m seeing in my subconscious," she tells me. "I have a dream or a nightmare; I journal them; then I go out and photograph them. Some of are actual elements [from the dreams]. Some of them are symbols. Some of them are metaphors."
