ICON will focus on photography of visual identifiers that residents can place at first glance and that out-of-towners recognize as distinctly Toronto. Drawing off personal experience, historical research, anecdotal experiences, commercial products and pop culture references such as movies and music videos, soteeoh has created a set of images that represent the visual identity of the city. With a diversity of photographs, ranging from iconic product photos, recognizable city views and intersections, cultural landmarks and people. This exhibition continues SoTeeOh’s exploration of Toronto’s developing visual identity through portrait, still-life, product, and urban landscape photographs.
The exhibit takes place at Project Gallery + Studios (1109 Queen St E) from April 27 - May 14, 2017.
