Kristen Dobbin and Thomas Volkmann's Photo Exhibitions "Two Ends of a Lifespan"

Kristen Dobbin and Toomas Volkmann's photo exhibits Two Ends of a Lifespan presents the perspectives on Estonian identity in Toronto's tight-knit diaspora community from two ends of a lifespan.

Toomas Volkmann's triptychs portray Estonian-Canadians born in Estonia in the early years of the Republic, between 1918 adn 1923, alongside personal reflections on their lives spent in two countries.
