Track Records: Trains & Contemporary Photography

Roy Arden, Ron Benner, Vera Frenkel, Angela Grauerholz, O. Winston Link, Louise Noguchi, Glenn Rudolph, David Tomas, Douglas Walker, Kathryn Walter and James Welling
Curated by: Marnie Fleming

An examination of how and why the image of the train continues to play an important role in contemporary photography and by extension in society as a whole. The exhibition explores
themes of crime and passion, symbols of power, crashes and ruins in the landscape, symbols of sexuality, and notions of junction and journey and loss.

Circulated by the Canadian Museum for Contemporary Photography, Ottawa.

Funded by the Canada Council’s Borrowed Exhibition Program, the Leon and Thea Koerner Foundation in Vancouver and B.C. Rail Ltd.
