Photo History – Snow

Visionary photographer William Notman (1826–1891) owed his early fame to portraits in snowy settings typical of Canada’s winters, shot entirely in studio! What did he use for snow? Lambswool, salt and paint. (So different from what the continent is going through this week.)

An exhibit on through April at the Canadian Museum of History lets you experience 19th century Canada through the lens of this pioneer, the first Canadian photographer to gain an international reputation.
