Collecting Photography with John Hartman
Friday, September 29, 12:15 to 1 pm
Rotary Education Centre at the MacLaren
Regional artist John Hartman will offer an insider perspective on his private collection of historic photographs, which includes over 500 objects dating from 1858 to the present.
John Hartman was born in 1950 in Midland Ontario, and studied Fine Art at McMaster University. He has been the subject of several national and international exhibitions including Big North (1999-2002) and Cities (2007-2009). Photographs of the landscape and preparatory sketches are central to Hartman’s artistic practice, which is attentive to landscape and the ways in which human history is inscribed into its contours. His collection of historic photographs reveals some of his preoccupations in capturing the landscape.
