PHSC Meeting, Wednesday, October 18, 2017
Architecture in Photography Exhibitions
Natalie Banaszak, B.A., M.A.
Natalie will present her award winning research on the participation of photographic societies in the promotion, marketing and sale of architectural photography as art and a symbol of national identity.
Ms Banaszak has a BA in Art History from the University of Guelph and an MA in photographic preservation and collections mgmt from Ryerson. She has spent a few months on the job at the Centre Canadian d’Architecture in Montreal and at the AGO here in Toronto as a Collections Intern for both institutes. She served as a Teaching Assistant at Ryerson, and a Graduate Intern at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas.
A second speaker, Ms Dolores Gubasta, Toronto photo editor and owner of KlixPix, speaks on her intimate involvement with the Don Newlands Archive. Newlands, a well respected Canadian photographer, shot for Maclean’s, Black Star and Paris Match. He was a consummate purist who rejected an industry increasingly reliant on the staged journalistic subject.
Join us at 7:30pm on October 18th in the Gold Room of Memorial Hall, in the basement of 5120 Yonge. The public is always welcome. Go to our Programs page for directions.
