MICHAEL CHAMBERS: TRANSFORMING REALITY

May 4 - August 3, 1997

Presented as a part of Toronto’s 1997 Photography Festival CONTACT.

“The strength of Chambers’ work lies in his ability to capture the human spirit through provocative images which demand full participation of the viewer.”

Michael Chambers: Transforming Reality was Wedge’s first exhibition. Featuring, an examination and celebration of the human spirit, the exhibition portrayed Chambers at his photographic best. Citing such artists from Henry Moore to Derek Jarman as creative influence, the strength of Chambers’ work lies in his ability to capture the human spirit through provocative images, which demand full participation of the viewer. Chambers’ work has been exhibited extensively throughout North America and abroad to critical acclaim, with critics describing his work from “dark and haunting,” to “exquisitely beautiful.”
