Deborah Samuel’s Elegy at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto

What a gorgeous show!

Elegy: Deborah Samuel

This is what I’ve always loved…the intersection of science and art.


Until July 2, 2012
Level 2

Canadian photo-based artist Deborah Samuel’s poetic images illustrate life’s fragility, transience and persistence through the rigid bones and shells of creatures long after flesh and spirit have moved on. The exhibition features 33 photographs, ten of which are of Royal Ontario Museum specimens.

Co-presented by the ROM’s Life in Crisis: Schad Gallery of Biodiversity and the Institute for Contemporary Culture.

Here’s a photo taken at the opening…Deborah and I are in the middle, surrounded by friends.
