Abstract

Billingham had early photographic work exhibited in 'Counterpoints Photography, Through the Lens of Toronto Collections', Art Museum, University of Toronto Art Centre, Canada, (May 6–July 30, 2016) curated by Jessica Bradley'Counterpoints' was a major exhibition that revealed the breadth and depth of interest in photography in Toronto. The exhibition evolved through the generosity of committed collectors who granted the loan of their works, allowing them to be seen by the public – many for the first time in Toronto. Highlighting a broad spectrum of private collections, Counterpoints proposed an experience of looking at photography that is ultimately heterogeneous and non-linear. Spanning nearly two centuries, the exhibition comprised 19th century singular images captured on metal and glass plates, through to artists’ works that acknowledge photography’s endlessly reproducible, ubiquitous presence in a vast and ephemeral digital world. Besides Billingham, other artists were Iain Baxter&, Bernd and Hilla Becher, E.J.
