Photography, Eleven Artists from Canada
From Evergon's enormous polarizing filter photographs to Raymonde April's intimate images, from Lynne Cohen's clinical visions to Susan McEachern's social concerns, from Jin-me Yoon's identity questions to Angela Grauerholz's nostalgic photos, from Thaddeus Holownia's typical landscapes to John Max's lucid portraits or Michael Campeau's social concerns, Photographies reveals singular perceptions of fascinating spaces. The film presents striking contrasts and is noteworthy for the diversity of its subjects. Photographies enables viewers to admire many of their works and reveals the wide array of practices and techniques found in the country. The photographers introduce the worlds that they at once witness and create. Each photographer establishes a relationship between his or her universe and the resulting perception of it. The film focuses on a parallel between experience and expression and proposes a form of beauty, which, as one of the participants says, is not always lie in the realm of perfection.
