On the occasion of Canada's 150th Anniversary, Black Dog Publishing and The Ryerson Image Centre present a century of Canadian history, told by way of 150 iconic photographs of Canada.

Taking an expansive view of many of the diverse histories that have constituted Canadian life, The Faraway Nearby highlights images of major political events and conflicts, the Canadian role in wartime, iconic landscapes across the nation, hockey and other sporting heroes, and candid reportage on the lives of ordinary citizens.

Also featured prominently are images of Indigenous peoples, migrant communities, portraits of such iconic figures as Margaret Atwood, Glenn Gould, Marshall McLuhan, Joni Mitchell, and Pierre Elliott Trudeau and various notable international figures on official visits to Canada.
