With RMG Exposed just around the corner on November 14, we asked our Board of Trustees for their favourites from the auction. Check our the selection from our Treasurer, Vince Bulbrook. We hope to see you at RMG Exposed!
Tom Ridout – Machine Age: This picture is a quiet contrast to what would have taken place here at one time. How did it come to be like this? The pieces of equipment strewn about seem to indicate that no one expected it to get to this end state. Could the people who worked there in the past have ever imagined it would come to this?
Daniel Bruno – Serenity: When daily activity becomes overwhelming there is an urge to want to disappear from it all. To where there are no people, phones, internet, TV or cars. A place something like this. Looking at the picture and imagining what that would be like will have to do for now.
Gary Chapple – On Ice: This is a haunting picture that shows no life where once there was a family. Who were they? Why did they leave? What are their memories of this place? And why didn’t someone else take their place? Similar to Machine Age and a number of other photos here.
