Toronto photography exhibit set to return for another year

April 4, 2017 by  

The Scotiabank COTACT Photography Festival will soon be arriving in Toronto for another year, and there will be hundreds of exhibitions where the public can see and appreciate the works of more than 1,500 artists from all over the world.

The festival, which first began in 1997, is the largest of its kind in the whole world. According to its organizers, the goal is to provide a showcase for photographic artists to display their works, and also to encourage others to take up the craft for themselves.

This year, Canada will be marking its 150th year, and the festival will be celebrating the occasion by using this as the theme for the event. The month of photography will kick off in the Ryerson Image Centre, and will continue on for the next four weeks, with displays and exhibits covering a wide variety of subjects. Poster printing can be used to create large size reproductions of some of the photographs, which can be sold to the public so they can enjoy them in their own home.

The contact Photography Festival is scheduled to run from May 1st until May 31st, with most of the activities centering on the Ryerson Image Centre, which is located at 33 Gould Street in Toronto. A full schedule of the exhibits and artists, along with additional information, can be found on the event’s website.
