The Cambridge Group of Clubs is proud to pay witness to a huge honour for Toronto-based photographer Yuri Dojc (and Re:Luxe Magazine’s principal photographer), whose series called “Last Folio”, was exhibited at the National Museum of Brazil last month at a spectacular building there designed by renowned Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer.
“Last Folio”, a series of images that show books and buildings abandoned after WWII in Slovakia, has also been exhibited in Berlin, Moscow, Vienna, Rome, Brussels, Cambridge, New York, Boston, and other famous destinations. Canadian Chargé d’Affaires Alison Grant was at the opening in Brazil and gave the opening speech, with dignitaries from Brazil, Germany and Slovakia and
20 ambassadors station in the capitol of Brazil.
Yuri, who lives in the Yonge and Eglinton area of Toronto, has also been featured in other recent exhibitions, including an “Honour” project about Canadian World War II veterans (book and shows across Canada), and a series called “North is Freedom”, showcasing portraits of descendants of African American slaves who escaped to Canada via the Underground Railroad, with
exhibitions at the Canadian embassy in Washington and US embassy in Ottawa.
