Figure and Ground: Deaf View Photography
“They are first, last and all the time, the people of the eye.” – George Veditz, 1912. This exhibit features images by deaf Canadian photographers, highlighting Deaf View Image Art (De’VIA) photography for the first time. It celebrates and nourishes deaf life and uses formal art elements to explore personal and cultural aspects of deaf experience. The images often include a centralized focus, with exaggeration or emphasis on hands, face, mouth, eyes, and movement.
