Dynamic Range
WAAC’s Annual Photo Exhibition

May 23 – June 15, 2024
Dignam Gallery, Toronto

Special Event: WAAC is participating in Doors Open Toronto
Saturday, May 25 & Sunday, May 26, 11 am – 5 pm

The Women’s Art Association of Canada is thrilled to announce Dynamic Range, a group exhibition featuring WAAC member photographers. Running from Thursday, May 23, to Saturday, June 15, 2024 in the Dignam Gallery, this exhibition aims to explore the range of the human eye through modern analogue and digital extensions.

From the purest white to the deepest black, the term dynamic range describes the span from brightest to darkest seen in a photograph.

“The best digital cameras capture only half as much range as the human eye” (Dominic Duchesneau & Van Jensen, filmmakers).

Land Acknowledgement
We wish to acknowledge this land on which the Women’s Art Association of Canada operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
