From Images to Words

[April 22, 2020]

The Toronto online sales platform FFOTO, active since 2015, is rising to prominence in this time of physical distancing, as a certain virus is forcing the closure of galleries and the cancellation of fairs. FFOTO is doing more, however, than purveying an inventory of forty thousand photographs. Since early April, “FFOTO’s Five Quarantine Questions” has encouraged artists and cultural professionals to discuss isolation and working at home. The first Quebec artist to answer the blog’s five questions: John Latour.
