On display July 2- August 20th, BYSTANDERS is a touring exhibition developed by the Alberta Society of Artists for the Alberta Foundation for the Arts (AFA) Travelling Exhibition Program (TREX).
“Armed with a camera and few preconceptions, street photographers enter public spaces as “bystanders” to the scene that unfold before them. They raise their cameras and hold a mirror to everyday life, hoping to capture a candidness that cannot escape the physiognomy and accuracy of the medium.”
-Shannon Bingeman, Curator
Images used in this exhibition, from the collection of the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, show a diverse range of subjects taken throughout Alberta and abroad over the course of four decades.
