A Virtual Group Photo Exhibition by Chinese Canadian Photographic Society of Toronto Members

Opening Remarks: Mr. Justin Poy, Honourary Patron, Asian Heritage Month-CFACI

The Chinese Canadian Photographic Society of Toronto, established in 1976, is a not-for-profit organization with 130 members. Their mission is to explore the art of photography as our expression to support multiculturalism. Our members participate in professional activities and events to make their contributions to society.

The group exhibition showcases 54 members’ photos selected from various club competitions in the past 10 years. The virtual group exhibition is divided into four parts. Part 1 to 3 present photographic realism (wild life and street photography) and artistic impression (special artistic effect photography and night scene photography). Part 4, entitled Kensington Market, playing seamlessly as an engaging video, is comprised of photos contributed by a group of photographers. Digitally edited to infuse passion, rhythm and music into the still photos to transform Toronto’s old landmark location for immigrants into a lively colourful community for all in the twenty-first century.

The virtual presentation also includes photographers briefly sharing their creative vision and key techniques used in the award-winning photos. There will be two Q&A for the audience to participate.
