TALK: Toronto’s Stockyards District – Then and Now (October 6, 2022)

The WTJHS invites you to join us for a special talk on October 6, 2022. Toronto’s Stockyards District – Then and Now is an illustrated talk on one of the most important and unique industrial areas of Toronto, which has all but been replaced by large box stores and homes. The talk will feature both Vincenzo Pietropaolo’s photographs from the1980s—most of which have never been seen before—and his photographs of the same streets and lands as they appear today.

Vincenzo Pietropaolo is a photographer and writer who has published over a dozen books. He has focused primarily on social justice issues, including migrant farm workers and people with disabilities, and often combines photographs with his own original writing. His photographs are in the collections of major museums in Canada, and on permanent inter-active display in the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.  He has been a life-long chronicler of his adopted city, Toronto, which is the subject of his next book: Toronto as Community: Fifty Years of Photography, to be published in May, 2023 by Cormorant Books.

Time: Oct 6, 2022 07:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
