CONTACT Photography Festival: 'A World Abandoned'
May 3 - 31, 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday May 6th, 6 – 9 pm
AGO Art Rental + Sales Gallery, 481 University Ave.
The DK Photo Group presents A World Abandoned; a photographic exploration of European architectural decay and abandonment. Photographed while filming a television series for Bravo!Canada titled photoXplorers, the images presented provide a haunting look into forgotten industrial mega-structures, castles, institutions, and churches. The resulting photographs are beautiful, original and eerily alive, though their subject matters are long dead.
