This retrospective of the late Toronto photographer Oscar Wolfman (1956-2011) focuses on his transgressive yet deeply reverent queering of Jewish spirituality and culture.  Large-format archival prints reference the the Italian settecento, in lush reimaginings of biblical scenes. Meditations on Jewish ritual practices provocatively foreground their homoerotic valence. The deeply humane relation of Wolfman’s camera to the inner life of his subjects is perhaps the purest distillation of his spirituality.

Queen Gallery is seeking  submissions for our upcoming photography group show WHERE IS HOME.

How do you define home? Is home where you are, where you left, or where you are going to? Is home a place, a feeling, or an action?

We welcome all artists to submit their photographic interpretations of HOME.


HOME by Warsan Shire

“I want to go home,

but home is the mouth of a shark

home is the barrel of the gun

and no one would leave home

unless home chased you to the shore”
