Narrative I | January 14 – February 29 2016 | Opening January 28 6pm-9pm
Don Newlands was to Canadian photojournalism as Wayne Gretzky was to hockey. Top of the heap, a definer of his art, creator of a body of work which had immediate impact and continues to resonate to this day.
He was a Grand Master of Flash. An originator whose work defined photojournalism and documentary for close to two decades. As he crisscrossed Canada in a series of high performance cars, he photographed Canada coming of age.
His portraiture captured the essence in real life moments, working in a style of great photojournalists of the 1950’s and 60’s.
