Stan Denniston: How To Read

Curated by Karen Love

Stan Denniston, a Toronto artist has used photographic groupings to query the notion of recollection, its structure and the ways in which it is affected by the overwhelmingly photoimage-saturated world we live in. Using what appears to be simple travel shots as visual resources, he builds visual 'correspondences' to trace his memories of places and events.

Supported by the Canada Council.

A catalogue was published by Presentation House Gallery in conjunction with the exhibition.
