Join guest curator Emily McKibbon on a guided tour of The Notman Studio: 1858–1915.

This exhibition surveys the diverse production of celebrated photographer William Notman’s bustling enterprise, from studio portraiture, to topographical landscapes, to genre scenes of prototypically “Canadian” pastimes. Emigrating from Scotland, Notman opened his first photography studio in Montreal in 1856 and found quick success. Expanding his business to various satellite locations, Notman employed and trained generations of photographers, studio assistants and retouchers. Together they presented a vision of Canada as energetic, young, sublimely beautiful, and deeply wintry, capturing the public’s imagination in the years preceding and following Confederation.

Emily McKibbon is Associate Curator and Collections Manager at the MacLaren Art Centre in Barrie, Ontario. From 2011 to 2013, she was the Howard and Carole Tanenbaum Curatorial Fellow at George Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York. She has previously worked in curatorial, collections and research capacities at the National Museum of the Royal New Zealand Navy, Auckland, the Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles, and Ryerson University in Toronto.
