Chris Shepherd | Prophecies 
September 12 - 26, 2020 
350 Dundas Street West, Toronto

Bau-Xi Photo is pleased to present a selection of new photographs by Toronto-based photographer, Chris Shepherd. Walking city streets for consecutive hours, Shepherd captures the mundane, ordinary, and passed-over with a sense of isolation. In Prophecies, Shepherd photographs the beauty of everyday objects and architecture as they stand still during this unexpected reality.

Shepherd’s work has been exhibited across North America and is included in major corporate collections in Canada. Most recently a number of his works were acquired by the HBC Global Art Collection in New York.

"The signs are all around us. Never explicitly pointing, never overtly positive or negative. It’s not all doom and destruction or love and laughter, because nothing is ever that simple. Harbingers speak, and those interested interpret. Visions don’t care whether we crave them or cower in fear from them. Portents aren’t reserved exclusively for seers and they don’t always get delivered to those who can read them.  And who really wants to know the unknowable future anyway?

To foretell what might happen requires reflection on the past and an understanding of the present. As a result, the future predicted will be a mirror of our yesterdays and todays. It’s all very confusing.

Prophecies are there for us to read and use, or to pass by and ignore.

The choice is ours."  - Chris Shepherd
