The Past is Never Far
Photo: Summer Leigh

The Past is Never Far is a photographic series that explores the extraordinary changes Toronto has experienced since its founding in the 18th century.

The exhibition brings together the perspectives of three documentarians, Elizabeth Simcoe (1762-1850), William James Sr. (1866-1948) and contemporary photographer Summer Leigh. Though separated by centuries, their works overlap and interact in this stunning series, which explores the relationships between time, place and artistic practice.

Admission is included with entrance to the Parliament interpretive centre.
