Gallery4 Annex: April-June 2022

The Close Park by Niv Shimshon

Niv Shimshon is a Hamilton-based photographer whose large-format portraits documents local residents of Hamilton, Ontario, in relation to their physical and social geographies to capture a sense of the city in flux and document Canadian identity in the 21st century.

An immigrant himself – having arrived in Canada in 2013 and in Hamilton in 2017 – Shimshon’s work explores the emotional and social intricacies of his new home.

This is an ongoing project. For more details, visit his website.

Visit Niv’s exhibit on the 4th floor of Central Library and at the Barton Branch.


Gallery4 Annex is located on Circuit 4.0 (4th floor Central Library) and provides space for community organizations and individuals to share their works.
