by valrac4_a3kqdy

The Art Gallery of Ontario presents Playing with Pictures from June 5 to September 5, 2010. The exhibition, organized by the Art Institute of Chicago and curated by Elizabeth Siegel features more than 40 of the best albums and loose pages from collections across the United States, Europe and Australia. Victorian Photocollage combines juxtaposition and variety through dramatic shifts in scale and composition. In their time, these collages took on a new theory of evolution addressing the changing role of photography and challenging the strict conventions of aristocratic society.
