SHANNON PERRY – Discovering Colour Pictures from WWII
Colour photos were very limited until the late 1940s. Imagine “discovering” 1000s of colour images from WWII that were transferred to Library and Archives Canada in 2008 from the National Defence Image Library! Shannon’s presentation is about that “discovery.” Although primarily of a public relations nature, the collection is a fascinating study of the early commercial colour technology as it was tested in the studio and in the field by combat photographers such as Ken Bell.
The public is welcome. Go to our Programs page for times and directions.
