The Art Gallery of York University is offering for sale limited edition, signed and numbered photographs by Robin Collyer. Over the past thirty years, his work in photography and sculpture has explored the shared language of contemporary art and the vernacular forms of modern urban life.

Daniel Stong's First House is a view of a log cabin built by Daniel Stong in 1816. The cabin remains in its original location, near Black Creek, on land the Stong's farmed prior to the development of York University. Collyer has augmented the cabin with the most ubiquitous of urban features, an automated banking machine. The resulting image disrupts our visual field while remaining both credible and familiar.

All proceeds raised support the programs of the Art Gallery of York University.
