The TANENBAUMS have put together one of the largest assemblages of photographs and daguerreotypes in Canada – and they’re still collecting. Until April 7/2019 there’s an opportunity to see two-hundred-plus of their images at the Ryerson Image Centre (RIC), 33 Gould Street. Admission is free.

If you take in only one photography exhibit this year, “True to the Eyes” should be on your list.

Occupying two large galleries, the exhibit highlights a range of humanistic pictures, from anonymous vernacular to masterworks by Southworth & Hawes, William Notman, Ernest J. Bellocq, Brassaï, Lisette Model, Diane Arbus, Mary Ellen Mark, Jim Goldberg, Rafael Goldchain, and Edward Burtynsky. Subjects include aspects of family, wealth and poverty, civil rights, nature and Canadian life.
