faces & Figures Showcase

The annual Faces and Figures Showcase celebrates the practice of human and human form photography.

This annual event affords all RA Club members the opportunity to showcase their people pictures. From travel and street portraits, outdoor posed portraiture, to studio portraiture and artistic nudes, if the human face or form is the primary subject of the photos, this evening’s event welcomes them all.

Hosted by the studio manager, Richard Whitbread, with participation from the Studio Group, the Life, Faces and Figures Group and the membership at large, this annual showcase always makes an impression!

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.
