Ryerson Image Centre says
Join artist Elaine Ling at a signing event for her latest book, Talking Stones: A Photographic Sojourn (2015). The event is presented in conjunction with three of her photographs on view at the RIC as part of our series, From the Collection, a rotating display highlighting works from the RIC's permanent collection.

Toronto-based photographer Elaine Ling has documented ancient stone formations, fragmented statuary figures, giant trees surviving for millennia, abandoned architectural structures, and indigenous families and groups during her wide-ranging travels. Photographing primarily in the desert landscapes of Asia, Africa and the Middle East, she captures remnants of early cultures, some still vital and others only partially preserved, to convey a persistent spiritual dialogue between past and present.

The photographs on view originate from two acquisitions of work spanning the artist’s career, generously donated to the RIC in 2001 and 2014. Until it became unavailable, Ling often used Polaroid Type-55 film, featuring the instant film’s unique edges in her prints to convey the immediacy of her experience.
