Professional Photography Exhibit Coming
Posted on Wednesday February 18, 2009 at 03:27PM
"The Greying Nation" showcases photographic works from Montreal Doctor, Dr. Mark Nowaczynski and Mundare-born photographer Dr. Orest Semchishen. In 1978 Nowaczynski began photographing the "hidden and vulnerable population to raise awareness about the need for home care services for seniors". Along with a non-profit agency, he continues to support and provide community and home care to help seniors live independently in their homes.
Semchishen, an important Canadian documentary photographer, travelled the byways of Alberta taking numerous historical photographs of seniors in their homes and at work in isolated communities throughout Alberta.
This exhibit is made possible through funding provided by The Alberta Foundation for the Arts.
