THE CANADIANS: PHOTOGRAPHS FROM THE GLOBE AND MAIL ARCHIVES. Ed. by David Thomson. Bone Idle, Toronto, 2016. Distributed by Artbook|D.A.P., New York. 172 pp. with 79 ills. (20 col.). 20 x 23 cm. ISBN 9780995185500 In English.
Publisher's description: The Canadians playfully and affectionately reimagines one of the most revered photography books of the 20th century, Robert Frank's The Americans. The source for the imagery is the print archive of The Globe and Mail, which contains more than 500,000 prints -- 24,000 of which have been donated to the newly formed Canadian Institute of Photography, housed within the National Gallery of Canada. Nearly 80 of these photographs have been selected for this book, and also form the basis for a national touring exhibition. These functionary press photographs, made to illustrate news stories -- the state of the roads after a severe winter; a politician on the campaign trail; the opening of a new laundromat -- hold no pretentions to be works of photographic art. However, taken together, they describe Canadian culture during an era of great transformation.
