The exceptional collection of Howard and Carole Tanenbaum reveals a deeply personal and socially aware approach to collecting, as well as an exceptional range, spanning from anonymous nineteenth-century daguerreotypes to iconic photographs from throughout the twentieth century.

This catalog, published in conjunction with an accompanying exhibition at the Ryerson Image Centre in Toronto, Canada, presents a selection of more than two hundred photographs from the collection. Richly illustrated throughout, the book includes an interview with the collectors and essays exploring their deeply personal and socially aware approach to collecting. True to the Eye highlights a range of photographic practice, from anonymous tintypes, daguerreotypes, and albums to iconic works by Brassaï and Diane Arbus, to more recent photography by Edward Burtynsky and Jim Goldberg. By showcasing a unique and expansive collection, this volume traces the history of the medium of photography from its inception.
