DOCUMENTING E B EDDY MILLS: A PHOTOGRAPHER'S PERSPECTIVE

Paul Harrison

Paul Harrison is a former member of the RA Club (late 1980s) and was for a time a Getty stock image photographer.  He is currently the Official Photographer and Image Archivist for the Workers History Museum in Ottawa, and is the on-site supervisor of the Museum's Chaudiére project.  

He will describe that project for us, including how it is organized and the work of the photographers - many of them RA Club volunteers - who are creating a unique record of the E B Eddy / Domtar Paper Mills as they exist today, before they are demolished or remodeled during the impending re-development of the property. 

He will add his own observations on the challenges and lessons of photography in such a unique environment.  Many remarkable examples of the kinds of images emerging from the project will be shown, with commentary on the production and post-production techniques used to enhance them.
