CONTACT Photo Festival 2019
May 2 - May 31, 2019
OPEN HOUSE: Thursday, May 2nd. 6-9pm @ 196 Davenport Road
German photographer Klinke’s first Canadian solo exhibition for CONTACT photography festival is a collection of images exploring the traditions of the Huastec people of eastern Mexico, and Onam, an annual harvest festival celebrated in Kerala, India. Standing against a dark background, the lone figures are empowered, conjuring associations with the chiaroscuro of Caravaggio and the stoicism of Renaissance portraiture.
Additional exhibited works by Costas Picadas and Lucien Clergue.
