Come join us for a photo presentation and reading!


George Webber’s poignant black-and-white photographs transport us into the forgotten, unknowable communities of the Canadian prairies. Throughout the journey, we’re confronted by the mysterious particulars of life, death, landscape and faith. Intimate portraits and the hard facts of the place are woven together to create a body of work that is by turns inspiring, consoling and sometimes achingly sad.

 

Aritha van Herk is an award-winning Canadian writer whose work has been acclaimed throughout North America and Europe. She first worked with George Webber on the photography book In This Place, published by Frontenac House.
