Vancouver-based photographer Harry Booth’s exhibition Corners/Cutlines is on view at Burnaby Art Gallery in Burnaby, B.C., through November 3. Working mostly in medium-format film, Booth focuses on Vancouver’s architecture. The title of the exhibition plays with language. Corners can be both a very public space (a street corner) or a private space (corner of a room or the four corners of the earth). “Cutline” is a term used in logging to describe the border between logged and unlogged land, while in journalism the term refers to the caption of an image. Corners/Cutlines explores these dualities in language and in visual images.
