For decades, The Globe and Mail carefully archived its photographs, creating a collection of over 700,000 images and a million negatives. These have now been digitized and over 15,000 original prints donated to the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada.
A selection of these fascinating photos can now be seen in the exhibition Cutline: The Photography Archives of The Globe and Mail, on view at the National Gallery of Canada.
Powerful and provocative, these pictures of war, political events, social revolutions and cultural icons offer a lens through which visitors can glimpse some of the defining moments of the 20th century in Canada. They also shine a light on the way photojournalism operated during this period, and the inner workings of a newsroom.
Organized by the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada, The Globe and Mail and Archive of Modern Conflict.
