RIC Research Fellowships
In 2018, the RIC will once again offer four fellowships for research related to photography. Fellows have the opportunity to study select areas of the RIC’s photography collections first-hand. These include the acclaimed Black Star Collection of photo-reportage, historic and fine art photography collection; and several archives devoted to the life and work of a diverse group of photographers.
The Faraway Nearby Catalogue
The Faraway Nearby is accompanied by a heavily-illustrated book, to be distributed worldwide by Black Dog Publishing at www.blackdogonline.com. Texts by an international team of authors explore how Canada’s visual identity in the twentieth century was constructed—from within and without—through the dissemination of images in this influential media outlet.
