SCOTIABANK CONTACT PHOTOGRAPHY FESTIVAL: PHOTOS OF THE WEEK

Posted on

One of our favourite cultural events in Toronto is the internationally acclaimed Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. Every year it is incredibly inspiring to see all of the amazing art and photography displayed at more than 175 venues throughout the city! During the month of May, an extensive range of exhibitions, public installations, films, lectures, and workshops are presented to more than one million people.

To celebrate this year’s theme, “Field of Vision”, we are counting down our top five photos every week!
