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. Kristen Dobbin's nostalgic series on Estonian summer camp, Jõekääru, documents young campers exploring their culture and identity, while highlighting a diaspora institution in transition. 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. The exhibit celebrates the Republic of Estonia's 100th birthday. The exhibits are available to view Monday-Friday from 10am-5pm and during events at Tartu College. The exhibits will be on display from February 28, 2018-May 20, 2018
