Tolulope Akanni
Back in Time: A Street Photography Project

Presented by The Theatre Centre

The Theatre Centre, 1115 Queen St. West
July 10–August 5, 2018
Reception and talkback: Friday, July 20 – RSVP here

Back in Time is a collection of travel photographs exploring the streets of Montreal. Through this showcase, Tolulope Akanni seeks to tell his story through his captions, colours, and photographs.

Artist Statement
The exhibition will be a visual narrative of my experience exploring the streets of Montreal.

I will be telling the story through my captions, colours and the photograph itself. The collection will be a blend of candid moments as well as landscape photos. The landscape pictures will come with a uniform colour grade that I developed from a digital colour experiment and they will have a signature teal + orange blend in dark tones.

For the candid moments, I will be sharing a narrative of the first 15 minutes leading to the moment before the shutter was clicked.
