The Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto is currently presenting Camera Atomica, the Aimia | AGO Photography Prize 2015 Exhibition, and Anne Collier as part of their Year of Photography. Camera Atomica continues through November 15, and the large-scale prints in Anne Collier, which examine gender, celebrity and appropriation, can be seen through January 10.
Durational photography is a term coined by Los Angeles-based artist Owen Kydd to describe his works, which oscillate between still photography and video. Kydd’s tightly composed, fixed-shot video loops appear at first to be static images, but reveal subtle movement over time. In his studio, he creates window display compositions that are often inspired by the odd and stuck-in-time storefronts he finds while walking along Pico Boulevard and downtown L.A.
