Photography Exhibition: Royal Ontario Museum - Canadian Content: Portraits by Nigel Dickson

Jean Chrétien, Prime Minister of Canada (1993-2003)The Royal Ontario Museum continually shows some of the best photographic exhibitions in North America. The Museum includes The Institute for Contemporary Culture. The Museum’s diverse collections of world cultures and natural history with almost 6 million objects make it one of the largest museums in North America.

Canadian Content: Portraits by Nigel Dickson is an amazing exhibition of one of Canada’s finest professional photographers, with an outstanding, and well deserved international reputation.

This exhibition will run through March 21, 2010

Nigel Dickson is an international award-winning photographer whose work has been published over the past thirty years in numerous magazines, from Saturday Night to Esquire, Fortune, Newsweek and Rolling Stone. Presented by the Institute for Contemporary Culture, Canadian Content: Portraits by Nigel Dickson brings a remarkable selection of arresting, insightful and witty photographs of famous Canadians. Underscoring the photographer’s unique connection with his subjects and his mastery of diverse photographic styles, this exhibition highlights Dickson’s depth as a photographer. His sitters have included such Canadian luminaries as Margaret Atwood, Jean Chretien, Doug Gilmour and Oscar Peterson.
If you’re in the Toronto, Ontario, Canada area through late March, I strongly suggest you take in this wonderful exhibition.

As I travel, I love seeing the work of other photographers as I hope you do. If you know of a new photographic exhibition which you think the Blog should publicize, please contact me.

Ned, I've seen this exhibition and I recommend it too. Thanks for recognizing the work of those who are outside the US. They create stunning photographs too.
