Toronto. PHSC received an email today from American author, filmmaker and photographer Harvey Wang. Harvey will be here at the Stephen Bulger gallery on Saturday, November 21, 2015 for a screening of his film and a book signing.

Harvey says, “I just wanted to let you know that I will be screening my film FROM DARKROOM TO DAYLIGHT (and signing books) in Toronto at the Stephen Bulger Gallery on Nov 21, 2015.

“The project explores how the dramatic shift from film to digital has affected photographers and their work. I interviewed more than 40 important photographers and prominent figures in the field, including Jerome Liebling, George Tice, Taryn Simon, Charles Harbutt, David Goldblatt, Sally Mann, and Eugene Richards, as well as innovators Steven Sasson, who built the first digital camera while at Kodak, and Thomas Knoll, who along with his brother created Photoshop”. 

Stephen Bulger Gallery in Toronto. Founded in 1994, the Stephen Bulger Gallery has focused on the exhibition and sale of international contemporary and historical photographs.

The Gallery maintains an inventory of approximately 15,000 photographs with a special emphasis on works that define the documentary tradition as well as historical photographs from Canada. We also maintain a bookstore with a title list of over 3,000 books on photography.

The film will be shown at CAMERA a venue within the gallery which hosts free
Saturday afternoon film screenings.
