18 must-see shows at Contact Photography Festival 2019

Kevin Ritchie, Now Toronto, April 30, 2019

The Toronto-wide event features exhibitions by Carrie Mae Weems, Moyra Davey, Robert Mapplethorpe, Michael Tsegaye, Ayana V. Jackson and more.

 

Condofication is hardly exclusive to Toronto. Rising Ethiopian photographer Tsegaye’s ongoing series examines the ways gentrification has reshaped the streetscapes in Addis Ababa, particularly how village neighbourhoods and highly localized culture have adapted to shiny new developments.
