Ice Age Scotty

Verso Gallery (1160 Queen West, 416-533-6362) To June 1

This photographic fable stars 11 rare Japanese celluloid toys. According to the backstory, these little dogs, on route to an international toy conference in Moscow, boarded a JAL flight from Tokyo that crashed in the Arctic. Jenkinson photographs their dreamlike adventures and encounters in a whimsical Arctic of styrofoam icebergs.

Her enigmatic, occasionally haunting images pay homage to the imagination and to unusual and beautiful toy design.
