Tuesday Night at the Museum Presents "Tod Ainslie: Pin Hole Photographer"

L&A County Museum & Archives, 97 Thomas Street East, Napanee

Exhibit opening!

Join artist and photographer Tod Ainslie for an informal talk. Learn about the art of pinhole photography and the methods he uses to create his cameras and produce his work.  His photos take us on the “Road to Freedom” as seen through the lens of his pinhole cameras. From a contemporary perspective, his photographs will guide you through the places and events prior to the Civil War and during a slave’s journey to get to the Promised Land known as Canada. Tod chooses historic sites that were seen through the eyes of the people who lived in that time,  who traveled those roads and who lived their lives (or lost them) in these places. Tod captures a sense of historical truth in the images of these sites. However, 150 years of time and “progress” have either eroded or taken some of them out of this context, either through attempts to interpret them or the built environment has grown up around them. By using the specialized pinhole cameras for each site’s unique setting, a genuineness has been achieved. His beautiful photography captures a strong sense of the period’s aura, a sense of the places themselves and an empathy for the people whose lives were lived in them.

Tickets are $3 each and are available at the door. Find out more by visiting www.CountyMuseum.ca or call the museum at 613-354-3027.
