"Borda's work is filled with nuance, personal connections and unexpected uses of imaging technology." —Galleries West

A thought-provoking art book exploring changing landscapes through the pioneering work of Canadian photographer Sylvia Grace Borda.

Sylvia Grace Borda made a substantial debut into new media and photo art when she launched Every Bus Stop in Surrey, BC. With this piece, Borda reclaimed California coastal conceptual photo strategies from the 1960s and used them to document a large Canadian city by its own transit system. This marked her entry into international recognition. Since then, Borda has undertaken epic projects to re-imagine urban spaces, from the "New Towns" of East Kilbride and Glenrothes in Scotland to modernist faith buildings in Northern Ireland.

In this dazzling new monograph, Sylvia’s exceptional body of work is examined and placed in both a regional and international context. Specifically, her practice developed in Surrey is examined in relation to art history, the Vancouver School of Art, digital media, community engagement, and projects concluded in Scotland, Northern Ireland, and Finland. Featuring essays by renowned curators, artists, and scholars—each presenting specific perspectives on how Borda’s diverse arts practice has shifted and expanded the mediums of art, photography, and social awareness—Sylvia Grace Borda: Shifting Perspectives constructs a conversation between the remembrance of place and current narratives in art history.
