Ten Cities: The Past Is Present by Wayne Johnston

| /

Each of us has memories that are born of particular places. When we return to those places we enter a realm where the past engages in dialogue with the present. Our ghosts from the past persist even when the places have changed, our memories have evolved, and we ourselves are not who we once were.

Artist Wayne Johnston explores these themes as he revisits ten cities that had a formative impact on his life. He visits ten sites in each of the cities and records his past and present experiences in prose poetry and drawings.

Come along to cities as diverse as Accra (Ghana), Geneva (Switzerland), Iqaluit (Nunavut), Kathmandu (Nepal), La Paz (Bolivia), London (Ontario), Manhattan (New York), Ottawa (Ontario), Toronto (Ontario) and Zagreb (Croatia). Contemplate how your own life has been formed by the experiencing and re-experiencing of particular places.
