The Work of Elaine Ling: A Conversation with Michael Mitchell

Peter Higdon Research Centre
122 Bond Street, RIC-241

In 2014, the Ryerson Image Centre received an acquisition of thirty-six photographs by local photographer Elaine Ling. These new holdings supplement the existing collection of works by Ling donated in 2002, which as a group represent a significant body of photographs examining constructed environments. Seeking the solitude of deserts and abandoned structures left by ancient cultures, Ling has explored the shifting equilibrium between the natural and the man-made in her photography.

Join Toronto photographer and writer Michael Mitchell for a discussion on the dialogues present in Ling’s work, as well as her photographic practice
