Opening of Kristen Dobbin's and Toomas Volkmann's Photo Exhibits "Two Edges of a Lifetime"

Museum of Estonians Abroad (VEMU)


On Wednesday, February 28th at 6pm at Tartu College, Kristen Dobbin's and Toomas Volkmann's photo exhibits Two Edges of a Lifespan will be opened. This exhibition presents the perspectives on Estonian identity in Toronto's tight-knit diaspora community from two ends of a lifespan. Kristen Dobbin's nostalgic series on Estonian summer camp, Jõekääru, documents young campers exploring their culture and idenitity, while highlighting a diaspora institution in transition. Toomas Volkmann's triptychs portray Estonian-Canadians born in Estonia in the early years of the Republic, between 1918 and 1923, alongside personal reflections on their lives spent in two countries. The exhibit celebrates the Republic of Estonia's 100th birthday.

In Estonian. No admission fee. A small donation would be appreciated.
