Hosted at Withrow Common, one of the newest venues to be added to Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, True North – X will showcase the book’s 10 exceptional and award-winning Canadian documentary photographers, featuring subjects that are as diverse as Canada itself. Simultaneously introspective and inquisitive, compassionate and critical, their works cover a vast range of topics from Indigenous people’s special relationship with hockey to international reporting from North Korea, Nepal, the United States, Colombia and Somaliland.
“Their images do more than tell the stories of the people in them but remind us all that without them we are isolated, left with a lesser degree of understanding of the world around us,” writes Moe Doiron, former director of photography for The Globe and Mail, in the book’s forward.
Photographers: Alexis Aubin, Amber Bracken, Chris Donovan, Gavin John, Pat Kane, Isaac Paul, Renaud Philippe, Galit Rodan, Adrienne Surprenant, Kali Spitzer.
