This exhibition showcases the photographic works of Kan Azuma (b. 1946, Tokyo, Japan), highlighting the artist’s poetic, lyrical and contemplative interpretation of the Canadian landscape.

The artworks poignantly visualize Azuma’s intimate experiences with the places he travelled to in Canada, the United States and Japan, from the late 1960s until he stopped making photographs in the early 2000s. With a thematic emphasis on the artist’s internalized gaze, the show offers a welcoming space for visitors to reflect on their own encounters with their surroundings, in particular those related to migration and the diaspora (the dispersion of people away from their ancestral homeland).
