In Time Frame, Drysdale’s photographic objective is to capture a viewer’s attention through an expression of beauty – he rewards the patient viewer. In this current body of work, Drysdale continues exploring his long running interest in time and memory. As always, his explorations have a touch of whimsy.


Level 3 Public Gallery

Shadows and Light features intimate images of healthcare workers, support staff, patients and families, shed light on the compassion, teamwork, and even joy that can be found amidst tragedy. The images and stories highlight love and loss, kindness and grace, and the importance of connection, delivering a message that is relevant and critically important during our current health-care crisis.

Crossing Boundaries – Finding the Moment, is Dipankar Mukherjee’s journey towards sharing photographs taken during the photographer’s travels. Travel involves crossing physical boundaries which in turn allows other boundaries to be crossed
through images captured by the camera.


Level 4 Cupola Gallery

In Minus 30, life and winter storms have immeasurable beauty, a careful edge, fragility, softened with time, both end and start.

The images in this series are part of an ongoing body of work that uses winter storms to explore our relationship with memory and passage of time…

…While exploring our collective connection to memory I returned to my childhood home in Saskatchewan. It is here in the harshest of prairie winter storms, that I continue to create images for this series. —- Angela Boehm
