Diversity and Community: 50 Years of Photographic Works by Vincenzo Pietropaolo
In his practice as a social documentary photographer, Vince Pietropaolo has explored daily life in cities as diverse and distinct as Havana, Mexico City, Rome, and Toronto. The exhibition consists of a survey spanning over fifty years, with a focus on social justice issues, including diversity, immigration, working class culture, LGBTQ, the search for home and place, and identity and displacement.
Marked by the artist’s empathetic approach, the works are poignant time capsules, revealing the poetry of people’s ordinary lives, whether in celebration or in struggle.
The exhibition coincides with the release of the artist’s newest book, Toronto as Community.
