Exhibition: Light in the Land: The Nature of Canada

Guelph, Ontario

New/Digital Media , Visual Arts — Excursion

This exhibition features photographs by scientist and environmental interpreter Dr. Roberta Bondar, exploring varied Canadian landscapes as well as their biodiversity and sustainability. Presented in 2017 to mark the 25th anniversary of the astronaut and photographer’s space mission, the exhibition of the University of Guelph alumna’s work captures that critical moment of inspiration: “My view from the spacecraft Discovery 25 years ago forever changed my view of Earth, and it was on that flight that I committed to protect this magnificent planet.”

Reflecting a singular fusion of artistic and scientific vision informed by her unique expertise as a professional photographer, researcher, astronaut, medical doctor and neurologist, the exhibition explores varied aspects of the distinctive and significant landscape that is Canada.
