From daguerreotypes to digital images, the McCord Museum’s collection offers a journey through time with more than 1.3 million photographs documenting the social history of Montreal, Quebec and Canada, from the 1840s to today.

Throughout the year, the history of photography will be adressed from the perspective of contemporary photographers:

September 6 to November 12, 2017:
Jayce Salloum presents an installation that explores themes of disputed territories, nationalism, social inclusion, and identity crises.
