Vid Ingelevics to gives an artist's talk at Peterborough gallery

Ontario-based photographer Vid Ingelevics gave an artist's talk at the Art Gallery of Peterborough Thursday, Nov. 26.

The talk is entitled Vid Ingelevics: hunter/gatherer where he investigates the human presence and imposition on the landscape.

"His large-scale photographs of rustic hunting platforms and woodpiles expose human-made structures that are so common to our region we rarely think about them. Capturing structures that seem to exist outside of any recorded history, his photographs document and record images of collective memory without disturbing them, states a press release.

This exhibition draws our attention to what Ingelevics calls "two of humankind's oldest survival strategies -hunting and gathering."
