Curated by Grace Eiko Thomson

This traveling exhibition is courtesy of the Japanese Canadian National Museum, Burnaby, B.C. Curated by Grace Eiko Thomson, 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 Westminister, and Vancouver, B.C. Together they form a compelling visual record of individuals and groups within the multi-cultural place that was British Columbia during its formative moment.

This exhibition in Toronto is co-sponsored and co-ordinated by Gendai Gallery and the Heritage Committee of the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre.

Catalogue available with essays by Jan Gates, Imogene L. Lim, Patricia Roy, Phyllis Senese, Grace Eiko Thomson, Jim Wolf. $20
