We, at CPO, want to promote other sites and projects we believe in. Here are the links:
CONTACT is an annual festival of photography in Toronto, during the month of May, with over 1000 local, national and international artists exhibiting at almost 200 venues. Founded as a not-for-profit organization 16 years ago, and now a charitable organization, the festival is devoted to celebrating, and fostering the art and profession of photography. It stimulates excitement and discussion among a diverse audience that has grown to over 1.8 million. CONTACT is the largest photography event in the world, and a premiere cultural event in Canada.
George Eastman House, an independent nonprofit museum, is an educational institution that tells the story of photography and motion pictures. An amazing place to visit if you are ever in Rochester, New York. The camera collection here is like nothing else in the world.
An amazing resource for studying the history of images in Canada. The database is easily accessible and we at CPO spend hours combing through these collections. A must see for anyone interested in photography.
The archives of Ontario visual database. Equally as interesting as the above link but with a focus on Ontario and its changing landscape and people.
Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago.
The Monte Clark Gallery contains some amazing works from Canadian artists and photographers, including image artists like Steven Waddell, Greg Girard and Scott Mcfarland.
Like the gallery above, Equinox Gallery in Vancouver represents some very talented artists and image makers, like our all time favorite photographer Fred Herzog.
Founded in 1994, the Stephen Bulger Gallery has focused on the exhibition and sale of international contemporary and historical photographs. Great gallery in Queen St. West, Toronto. And they also show films in their lounge. Visit when in Toronto.
The above link is an amazing project focused on promoting Canadian music. Please visit and have a listen.
The above link is for a great site about the latest news on photography, including new techniques, photographers and equipment.
