Japanese Canadian Studio Photography to 1942

This exhibition has ended.

This exhibition of eighty photographs explores a period covering almost fifty years of history through the lens of Japanese Canadian studios operating in British Columbia until the internment of 1942. The images capture the great diversity of the province’s immigrant communities at that time: Europeans, Chinese, Japanese and Africans are all represented; elite members of society as well as workers.
