Abandoned But Not Forgotten — Toronto

On Sept. 25, 2014, Digital Imprint drew about 200 guests to photographer Giulio Muratori’s exhibit at the Goodfellas Gallery in Toronto’s Queen West. Entitled “Abandoned,” it featured his deepest and darkest work of deserted structures — an airplane hangar, an empty hospital and a jail cell — shot during his two-week sojourn in Italy. The exhibit’s 22 photos also documented Muratori’s time with a troupe of photographers called The Intruders. Guests hobnobbed with bubbly, vino and Steam Whistle beer paired with a selection of hors d’oeuvres from chef Gavin Vasquez. Some enjoyed Mombacho cigars outside. Proceeds from the night went toward The Daughter Project, part of the non-profit charity Global Family, which provides long-term holistic services to sex trafficking victims. The charity’s executive director Jennifer Jensen and Italian consul general Giuseppe Pastorelli stopped by to show support and further the discussion. As the late American photojournalist Dorothea Lange once said, “Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life
by holding it still.”
