Harry Enchin’s TorontoTIME will be presented at Akasha Art Projects in Toronto from September 7 through October 5. The opening reception will be Saturday September 7 from 5 to 8 p.m. With this work, Enchin explores the idea of time through photo collages that combine City of Toronto archive images with contemporary photographs taken at the same places. The artist explains, “With a reference ‘old’ image in hand, I revisit the exact spot where the original image was taken. I find the same perspective, lining up the ‘old’ and ‘new’ and then capture a ‘new’ image. A high resolution scan of the source material is digitally combined with the new image to create the photographic collage.”
