More Dates & Times

This exhibition is built around dramatic photographs mountains, passes, and valleys in Jasper and Waterton Lakes National Parks. Those taken in 1915 are compared with recent photographs from the same sites. They reveal almost a century of changes in landscape, in interests in, and ideas about, our national parks. The exhibition includes a variety of complementary media and artifacts. Early in the 1970s Edmonton radiologist Orest Semchishen began looking, seeing, and concentrating his camera eye on the people and places of Alberta. The people in these photographs are not the famous nor the infamous, but people who live out their lives doing what they do, meeting and affecting the lives of others directly and indirectly and those of us who see these photographs.
