The BlogTO [2] Toronto arts blog has a nice post, with pics, of The Celebrity Persona exhibition at BCE Place Galleria. The exhibition features digital reproductions of photos from Ryerson University’s Black Star Historical Black & White Photography Collection [3].

Comments the post’s author:

In a society where celebrity is ‘constructed’ through premeditated photo-ops and unquestioned airbrushing, the exhibit is refreshing in the way it captures celebrities in an unprocessed and genuine manner … While all the photos were well-taken and professionally crafted, there was a sense of … unpretentiousness that permeated from the exhibit.

Check it out. [2]
