The McMillan Arts Centre (MAC) is hosting a new photography exhibit in its Cloakroom Gallery, in collaboration with the Exposure Photography Festival.

The PERSPECTIVES collection features the work of six photographers’ and their perspectives on photography and how it impacts an image-saturated world, according to a media release by the MAC. 

“The exhibitions present a broad range of works, including photocollage, conceptual photography, politically engaged practices and works that embrace social and individual experience, as well as visual explorations of identity and personal narratives,” reads the release.

The exhibit can be viewed at the MAC or online and includes work from Barbara Davidson, a three-time Pulitzer and Emmy award-winning photojournalist, the microscopic views of Montreal photographer Jean Bruneau, G.A. (Tony) Fuller’s Indigenous images of coastal totems and Jim Decker’s photos of underwater creatures.

Visitors will also be able to view work from Chelsie Xavier-Blower, environmental film maker and photographer and Brenda Castonguay, whose play on the ancient art of Trompe-L’oeil includes incorporating hand painted acrylic textured gels onto her images printed on aluminum substrates.

PERSPECTIVES is a celebration of the photographic arts, in collaboration with Exposure Photography Festival, a Calgary–based non–profit, in its 18th edition. Previous festivals have received over 850,000 visits and this year Exposure estimates another large audience to the extensive program of exhibitions and events hosted in galleries, local businesses and online.
