  RIC NEWSLETTER

Welcome to the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC). The RIC exists for the research, teaching and exhibition of photography and related media.

The following exhibitions are now on view: 

The Light Inside: Wendy Snyder MacNeil, Photographs and Films
This exhibition brings renewed attention to the compelling portraiture of pioneering American photographer and educator Wendy Snyder MacNeil, whose archive is preserved at the Ryerson Image Centre. 

Spring Hurlbut: Airborne
This video by acclaimed Canadian artist Spring Hurlbut documents the release of cremated remains entrusted to the artist, offering a silent meditative reflection on mortality and the physical presence of death. 

Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof: The Relics of Lumen
Displayed on the Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall, this newly-commissioned video by Canadian experimental filmmaker Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof explores different representations of stars, captured in still and moving images over the last century. 

Ways of Seeing: Building the RIC Collection
Students from Ryerson University’s Film and Photography Preservation and Collections Management program present this exhibition drawn from the RIC’s photographs collection, including original works by a variety of practitioners from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. 

From the Collection: Elaine Ling
Toronto-based photographer Elaine Ling has documented ancient stone formations, fragmented statuary figures, giant trees surviving for millennia, abandoned architectural structures, and indigenous families and groups during her wide-ranging travels. From the Collection is a rotating display highlighting works from the Ryerson Image Centre’s permanent collection.
