Louie Palu — Ryerson Image Center
Ryerson Image Center
33 Gould St, Toronto (CANADA)
Dates to be announced
Curated by Gaelle Morel and made up of over 100 vintage prints and ephemera this will be the most comprehensive exhibition of Louie Palu’s landmark project on mining communities in Canada’s North.
Between 1991 and 2003, Canadian documentary photographer Louie Palu established himself in the mining communities of Northeastern Ontario and Northwestern Quebec. Over time he accumulated an extensive, in-depth body of work that reveals the living and working conditions of the miners, while also capturing the formidable industrial architecture of the pits. Cage Call gathers together more than fifty black-and-white photographs and ephemera from Palu’s visual archive of this central but often overlooked and misunderstood aspect of Canada’s industrial culture.
