Opening – Oscar G. Rejlander: Artist Photographer

Explore early art photography through the work of the man who invented the genre. Join us for the official opening of Oscar G. Rejlander: Artist Photographer.

Often referred to as the “Father of Art Photography,” Rejlander has been praised for his early experiments with combination printing, for his collaboration with Charles Darwin, and for his influence on the work of Julia Margaret Cameron and Lewis Carroll. This groundbreaking exhibition is the first major retrospective on Rejlander, highlighting newly discovered research and a selection of works being brought together for the first time.

Openings are open to the public free of charge. The exhibition will be presented in the Canadian Photography Institute Galleries, on the second floor, until February 3, 2019.
