Larry Towell | Union Station

9 September - 14 October 2017

Opening Reception: Saturday, September 9, 2-5pm

Exhibition Dates: September 9 - October 14, 2017


For more than 40 years, Larry Towell has documented states of transition around the globe. In 2013, he instigated a documentary project in Union Station, Canada's busiest transportation hub. His photographs are a behind the scene look at one of the nation's most complex renovation projects, while passengers continued to use the services of the station. From the excavation to the Great Hall, Towell uses both 35mm and panoramic formats to capture the people working and using the railroad station. Although once the domain of leading photographers hired on public commission, if civic projects today are photographed at all, it is seldom from such a thorough perspective.
