|Neil Dankoff: Reflections of Camp
May 23 – June 23, 2013
opening reception: Thursday, May 23 from 6-9pm
Neil Dankoff’s panoramic photography stems from a desire to capture the artful beauty in nature. His reverential view of the landscape has its roots in Dankoff’s youth spent at summer camp. The images presented in Reflections of Camp, are celebratory portraits of six established camps in Northern Ontario; the water’s mirror-like surface, misty mornings and intensely saturated colours, which are unique to these regions. Attending camp has been a right of passage for multiple generations. Furthermore, depicting the wilderness of Northern Ontario has been a long-standing Canadian artistic tradition. Dankoff bridges the personal connections that people have to these wild spaces with the larger collective experience. The rich images in Reflections of Camp envelop viewers and create a reminiscent sense of place, peace and youthfulness.
Featured camps: Camp Arowhon, Camp Tamakwa, Camp Tamarack, Camp Timberlane, Camp Walden, and Camp White Pine.
