Meet our photography experts

Saturday 29 October
In Galleries B102 and B103
Included with admission to the Gallery

1:30 PM
Before newspapers entered the digital age, photographs were printed, marked up, and altered by hand. Roger Hargreaves, curator of Cutline: The Photography Archives of The Globe and Mail, explores the fascinating exhibition of photo archives that features images that defined the 20th century in Canada. He shares insights into how the archives not only create a narrative about the complexity of newspaper photography, they also tell the compelling story of a nation. In English with bilingual question period.

3:00 PM
Luce Lebart, Director of the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada, discusses the importance of documentary photography and the history of collecting and archiving, using Cutline: The Photography Archives of The Globe and Mail as a point of departure to explore the significance of photographic archives in Canada and the world. In French with bilingual question period.
