No Justice, No Peace: From Ferguson to Toronto positions photography at the forefront during an era of heightened global protests against systemic violence by police. No Justice, No Peace features the work of three socially-conscious photographers, who capture the present, build on the past and shape the future through their representation of current activism.

Photographer Zun Lee’s politically charged images capture the aftermath of the protest action in Ferguson, Missouri.  Spawned by Ferguson and a global call for action, BLMTO was mobilized in Toronto.

Jalani Morgan’s depictions of BLMTO protests are intense, dramatic and have a ubiquitous presence on social media.

The work of Nation Cheong contextualizes a history of localized protest movements in Toronto with his scenes of political advocacy and grass roots activism.

The provocative nature of the work of all three photographers evokes the pan-geographic urgency with which their black subjects demand to be seen and heard.
