Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery
Curated by Grace Eiko Thomson, from the Nekkei National Museum and Cultural Centre
This exhibition looks back through a period of almost fifty years of history, through the eyes of Japanese Canadian studio photographers who operated in Cumberland, New Westminster, and Vancouver, BC. The studio images reveal subjects from a diversity of communities: European, Chinese, Japanese and African-American immigrants are all depicted, not the province’s lite and workers.
This project was funded by the Community-University Research Alliance.
