Selwyn Pullan: Photographing Mid-Century West Coast Modernism
Tuesday, October 09, 2012
The West Vancouver Museum is pleased to announce the publication of Selwyn Pullan: Photographing Mid-Century West Coast Modernism and the museum's second exhibition featuring the work of critically acclaimed photographer Selwyn Pullan this fall.
Pullan photographed projects for British Columbia's leading architects of the era, including Ron Thom, Fred Hollingsworth, Ned Pratt, Arthur Erickson and Barry Downs. With many of these projects now demolished or altered beyond recognition, his archive forms a crucial record of this definitive architectural movement.
The first full-length book dedicated to Pullan's compelling photographs, Selwyn Pullan is an extensive retrospective with beautifully reproduced images and illuminating texts that place the photographer in historical and cultural context.
Highlights from the book and images that have not been previously exhibited will be featured.
Place: West Vancouver Museum, 680 17th Street, West Vancouver
Time: Opening night events begin October 9, 2012 at 7 p.m. (Exhibit runs October 10-December 15, 2012)
