Take Me There
Travel photographs from Air Canada’s enRoute magazine (2009-2014)
From the Bahamas to China and beyond, Air Canada’s enRoute magazine takes its readers on a global journey each month. Working with some of the most acclaimed Canadian and international travel photographers, the magazine offers a distinct perspective on the world. This exhibition highlights the narrative power of photography and the importance of visual storytelling in our everyday lives. It is a celebration of the photographers who take us there.
Buy Art, Support the Air Canada Foundation
Air Canada’s enRoute is offering a selection of limited-edition prints from the show for sale in partnership with The Print Atelier, an online gallery founded by Canadian photographer Maude Arsenault with the aim of making the process of collecting and discovering art photography more accessible to a new generation of collectors. Proceeds from the sales will benefit the Air Canada Foundation, a charitable organization whose mission is to help connect sick children to the medical care they need, alleviate child poverty and make the wishes of ill kids come true. Thank you to the photographers, who have generously donated their works for this project.
