The photography featured in this exhibition invites you to spend time considering the importance of the urban forest at Ontario Place.
The artists responded to a call to document the trees of Ontario Place. We know that pending development changes to this historic public park in the coming years means this body of work is helping to create a record of the hundreds of trees that were planted on the site over 50 years ago.
Part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival 2022.
