Contact Toronto Photography Festival 2009: Junction BIA Call for Submissions

Still Revolution will look back to the revolutionary foundations of photography while looking forward to the innovations that are stimulating a transformation of the role and function of the medium. Suspending moments in time that are always in flux, this theme will reflect a complex history marked by pervasive change.
