Behind the Lens

Beer and Photography Together at Last

One of the more interesting participatory events taking place at the upcoming CONTACT Photography Festival is a series of tours called Heineken Behind The Lens. Each tour takes place in a specific neighbourhood - from the Junction to West Queen West and the Fashion District - and they all weave through galleries and other inspirational spots before concluding with suds and snacks at a local watering hole.

I bring this up now because these tours are going to fill up. For some tours, space is already somewhat limited so best to rsvp pronto to morad [at] contactphoto [dotcom] or by calling 416.880.4539.

There are four tours (one each Saturday during CONTACT). More details can be found via the following links:
