Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival

Each May, the professional photography non-profit CONTACT throws an international festival sponsored by Scotiabank, featuring an international bevy of artists. 

For the whole month, Toronto’s art galleries and event spaces fill with work by thousands of photographers, making CONTACT one of the largest such festivals in the world. Not only that, the city itself becomes part of the festival’s exhibits — in the past subway stations, power plants, and even The Bentway beneath the Gardiner Expressway have all been the site of CONTACT Photography Festival installations. 

It’s easy to see why the CONTACT Photography Festival has been a favourite on Toronto’s spring social calendar since 1997. This year, some of the things to see at the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival include work by Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Kwasi Kyei, Anastasia Samoylova and others.
