  • Imagining Winnipeg

    History through the Photographs of L.B. Foote

    Esyllt W. Jones (Author)

    In an expanding and socially fractious early twentieth-century Winnipeg, Lewis Benjamin Foote (1873-1957) rose to become the city’s pre-eminent commercial photographer. Imagining Winnipeg, prepared and introduced by award-winning historian Esyllt W. Jones, collects 150 Foote photographs from the more than 2,000 images in the Archives of Manitoba Foote Collection and challenges our understanding of visual history and the city we thought we knew.

  • All Our Changes

    Images from the Sixties Generation

    Gerry Kopelow (Author)

    All Our Changes is a stunning collection of 160 black and white photographs taken between 1968 and 1970. These images capture the innocence and earnestness of the early Canadian hippie movement, from political protests and speakers’ corners, to Festival Express and the Mariposa Folk Festival. Joni Mitchell is here, as are the Guess Who, but so are everyday kids hitching rides, hanging out, and, one by one, forever changing the Canadian political and cultural landscape.

  • The North End

    Photographs by John Paskievich

    John Paskievich (Author)

    Winnipeg’s North End has informed the Canadian mythology and influenced the national psyche. The North End also divides and defines the city of Winnipeg, shaping its politics and sense of identity. In these photographs, taken between the mid-1970s and the mid-1990s, John Paskievich set out to explore the North End he knew in his youth.
