At the MMFA:

Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh (1908-2002) was indisputably one of the greatest portraitists of the 20th century. (On until January 2022)

Montage by Duncan Cameron, Library and Archives Canada, 1960

Over the course of more than half a century, his lens captured not only the idealized essences of his subjects, but their true individual characters as well. His unforgettable, enduring, poignant images speak of empathy and embrace the whole of humanity. Thanks to the extraordinary generosity of the artist’s wife, Estrellita Karsh, the MMFA is the grateful recipient of 111 pristinely preserved photographs. Among these silver gelatin prints, most of which are in large formats, are many rare prints, meticulously developed by the artist himself.


Mois de la photo:

Quand la nature ressent, 17e édition, 8 sept – 24 oct 2021.

Réalisée sous le commissariat de Stefanie Hessler, avec la collaboration de Camille Georgeson-Usher, de Maude Johnson et de Himali Singh Soin, la 17e édition de la biennale a lieu du 8 septembre au 24 octobre 2021. Cette édition de MOMENTA ouvre la porte à de multiples interprétations. D’un côté, elle s’intéresse à un·e humain·e qui ressent la nature, en tâtant un bleuet cueilli dans la forêt par exemple, éveillant ainsi les cinq sens : la vue, l’odorat, le gout, l’ouïe et le toucher. D’un autre côté, elle s’attache à la nature qui ressent en retour.
