Photography exhibition, July 15 to August 31.
Drawing on the powerful symbolism of the 7 pm cheer, fine art photographer and community advocate Michelle Leone Huisman has created a collection of photographs, titled An Unexpected Collection.
“This collection started quite unexpectedly — in our own household during the 7pm cheer. It started with one broken spoon, then another, then I started wondering — is this happening to others? I went out to the community, and it became so much more than just broken spoons. Every broken spoon revealed a unique story from each person who was banging their pots and pans every night at 7pm for the first responders.” Michelle Leone Huisman
The broken spoon photographs of An Unexpected Collection are printed using a 19th-century technique called tri-colour bichromate gum over palladium. Which makes them last for 500 years. Each photograph is paired with an individual’s story about the pandemic. https://www.michellehuisman.com
