Photographer Eamon Mac Mahon talks about his practice

Perfect timing! Coinciding with SCENES FROM HERE, our CONTACT exhibition featuring his work, Daylight Magazine publishes Landlocked.

Daylight Magazine has just released Eamon Mac Mahon: LANDLOCKED, another in their series of multi-media features. Here Eamon Mac Mahon talk about his photographic work and inspiration.

Eamon Mac Mahon grew up at the edge of the boreal forest, in a coal mining town in the foothills of the Rockies. Ever curious, he wondered about the towns in the far northwest of Canada and Alaska that existed without any roads leading to them. These towns were quite literally landlocked and were situated amidst vast areas of uninhabited land. Beginning in 2004, Eamon began traveling with a bush pilot to visit and photograph these far-flung communities each autumn.

Alejandro Cartagena: Artist Talk | 2011 CONTACT Photography Festival

Circuit Gallery presented, as a Featured Exhibition in the 2011 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival, a solo exhibition of work by Alejandro Cartagena from his acclaimed project “Suburbia Mexicana: Cause and Effect” (2006 – 2009).

This is a video recording of the artist talk that Cartagena gave in Toronto, on Saturday, May 7, 2011. (Run time: approx. 32 mins.).

The photography exhibition Suburbia Mexicana: Cause and Effect ran from April 28 – June 17, 2011.

Suburbia Mexicana is a documentary project deeply rooted in the local and the particular, in the artist’s own experience living and working in the northern Mexican city of Monterrey. It is an ambitious and committed project that seeks to tell the complex story of the region’s rapid suburban expansion: from urban gentrification and inner-city ‘ghettoization,’ to the seemingly unplanned and unhampered suburban sprawl emanating from many of its fast growing cities, including the environmental consequences.
