Where Toronto - - CONTENTS -

Cana­dian iden­tity—the theme for this year’s city-wide Sco­tia­bank Con­tact Pho­tog­ra­phy Fes­ti­val—is a com­pli­cated topic. Artist and re­cent New Yorker pro­file sub­ject Pe­tra Collins gives her take in the form of sun-soaked por­traits that tug at the ten­sion be­tween ado­les­cence and adult­hood. Her pic­tures show girls lan­guish­ing on their beds or look­ing away from the cam­era, as if they’re se­cretly curs­ing un­seen en­e­mies.

Anna and Kath­leen (Rain­bow) by Pe­tra Collins, one of 1,500 pho­tog­ra­phers fea­tured in 200 ex­hi­bi­tions at the fes­ti­val.
