THE TORONTO STAR/PAN AM: SIXTY YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHY


THE TORONTO STAR/PAN AM: SIXTY YEARS OF PHOTOGRAPHY

On view until August 15, 2015
Student Learning Centre, Ryerson University (341 Yonge Street)
Also on display to Pan Am and Parapan Am ticketholders at the Mattamy Athletic Centre (50 Carlton Street)


Curated by RIC director Paul Roth, this slideshow projection includes over 125 photographs from the Toronto Star’s coverage of the games since 1955. The Star donated their photographic archive to the Toronto Public Library in 2014 and Roth, working with photo-researcher Carol Elder, looked through decades of Pan Am coverage before making the final selection. From powerful images of runners crossing the finish line, to snapshots of spectacular gymnastic routines, these photographs capture Canada’s relationship with the games and the great physical prowess of our athletes.

WEEGEE: MURDER IS MY BUSINESS


WEEGEE: MURDER IS MY BUSINESS

October – December 2015
Main Gallery, Ryerson Image Centre


For an intense decade between 1935 and 1946, Weegee (1899–1968) was one of the most relentlessly inventive figures in American photography. His graphically dramatic and often lurid photographs of New York crimes and news events set the standard for what has become known as tabloid journalism.
