Seit den 90er Jahren verstärkt VOX den Fokus auf Photographie und Technologien, woraufhin das Virtuele Museum der Photographie Quebeque eingerichtet wird. Der Fonds documentaire soll der Lehre der modernen Photokunst dienen und das Zentrum bietet daher sowohl Künstler als auch Laien den Zugang zu der umfassenden ikonografischen Quelle über Photographie aus Quebeque, die die Arbeit von mehr als 120 Photographen von 1950 bis heute umfasst.
The gallery opened its doors at 700 Queen Street West, Toronto, Canada on March 23, 1995. Since that time, it has presented solo and group exhibitions including the work of historical and contemporary photographers, from across Canada and around the world. Showing primarily documentary, or information-based, photography, the gallery specializes in photographs that tell stories both large and small. Although its exhibition roster and vast inventory concentrates on historic, established or mid-career artists, the gallery remains a driving force behind CONTACT, Toronto s Annual Celebration of Photography, which offers unparalleled opportunities for emerging artists to reach a vast audience. Through its participation at art fairs, the Gallery has introduced the work of Canadian artists to an international audience while constantly looking for talent in other countries to introduce to our local audience.
The Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography was founded and affiliated with the National Gallery of Canada in January 1985. However, its history can be traced back to World War II 1939 1945 , as the Still Photography Division of the National Film Board of Canada. For nearly five decades, the Division collected and championed Canadian photography. It built up its collection by assigning photographers to document Canada, its resources and its people. Part of this extensive archive, which includes negatives dating from 1941 to 1962, is now housed at Library and Archives Canada. In the 1960s, the Division moved away from a strictly informational role; it established its fine print collection and launched a program of exhibitions and publications. The CMCP carried on the Division s legacy, collecting photographs and producing major exhibitions and award-winning publications.
CONTACT is an annual month long festival of photography with over 1000 local, national and international artists at more than 220 venues across the Greater Toronto Area in May. Founded as a not-for-profit organization 13 years ago, CONTACT is devoted to celebrating, and fostering an appreciation of the art and profession of photography. As the largest photography event in the world, and a premiere cultural event in Toronto, CONTACT stimulates excitement and discussion among a diverse audience that has grown to over 1,000,000 and is focused on cultivating even greater interest and participation this year. The festival's success, to a great degree, is a result of the open call for exhibitions and this continues to provide an invaluable opportunity for emerging artists to contribute unexpected and memorable encounters with photography throughout the city, alongside leading professionals. Since 2002, curated programming and special events are a central focus of development. This includes our primary exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art, high-profile public installations, feature exhibitions, an international lecture series, a film program in partnership with the National Film Board, portfolio reviews and workshops. Through the ongoing development of the festival into a leading proponent of photography, we increase exposure and recognition for local, Canadian and international artists.

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the invention of photography, VOX, centre de diffusion de la photographie, organized in 1989 the first presentation of Le Mois de la Photo Montr al, which included more than 60 exhibitions as well as a large number of related activities. This original event was a catalyst, creating a gathering place, unprecedented in the Montreal and Canadian artistic community, and served as an inspiration for transforming Le Mois de la Photo Montr al into a biennale one that, under the auspices of VOX produced seven events between 1989 and 2001. In September 2002, Le Mois de la Photo Montr al became an autonomous not-for-profit corporation charitable status was obtained in 2006 . The change in administration was accompanied by a shift in the artistic direction: for each presentation of the event, the appointment of a new Guest Curator with a new theme lends to each biennale a singular artistic and theoretical orientation. This artistic formula was proven successful with the 2003 and 2005 events.
