Gallery Artist Phil Bergerson's Upcoming Exhibition at the MacLaren Art Centre

"Toronto-based photographer Phil Bergerson has long been interested in storefront displays, billboards  and the unintentional still lifes of American cities. For over two decades, he has been documenting the material and visual culture of neglected urban spaces, revealing truths about a nation that are at once humorous and disturbing, ironic and moving.

In the summer of 2001, Bergerson’s photographic project brought him to New York, where he witnessed a city on the verge of intense change. New York, 2001-2002 is a virtual exhibition of photographs Bergerson took during this trip, as well as a subsequent trip to New York shortly after the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Centre." – Renée van der Avoird, June 2016
