Through April 7 in Ottawa, the Canadian Photography Institute is exhibiting PhotoLab 1, a collection of images focusing on the theme of windows. Including work by both historical and contemporary photographers, the photographs explore windows’ ability to both show and hide, the boundaries of space they delineate, and questions about the viewer and viewed.
