drawing room

a note to my son, stefan

what is interesting is that we are intersecting!
you have grown up and are writing about art.
i, who started my career late in life, am producing art.
i went back to school when i was 50, 13 years ago.
you and anthony were in shock that i would leave my
careet at the NFB! i remember.
i just wanted to immerse myself in photography and went
on to do my MA in visual arts.
and now, you are doing an MA in Art History.
and able to write about my work with somewhat of an objective eye
having watched me rebuild a career and evolve in
my photographic expression, stepping into a world that
is kind of a fictional narrative...
having come from a documentary film background...

every moment is two moments. Anne Michaels.

looking glass

sotto, acqua

of time, lost now at Art Mur in montreal

In of time, lost, Montreal-based photographer

Ewa Zebrowski reflects upon the suspension and deterioration of memory.

Evocative and mysterious, Zebrowski's quiet yet poignant images plumb

the depths of a desire for the past. The collection, shot in Italy and France,

belies its medium - the photos shimmer, as if submerged just below the surface.

of time, lost will be at At Mur in Montreal until February 26, 2011.
