Dan Savard speaks at Friends of the BC Archives lecture series

Dan Savard, author of Images from the Likeness House, nominated for the Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Prize, will speaking at the upcoming Friends of the B.C. Archives lecture series. In his illustrated presentation, Dan will speak about the making of his book, (a 3-decade project), his sources, and what they have revealed.

Sunday, March 20th, 2011
Newcombe Conference Hall
Royal BC Museum
675 Belleville St., Victoria
2:00 - 3:30 p.m.

Images from the Likeness House explores the relationship between First Peoples in British Columbia, Alaska and Washington, and the photographers who made images of them from the late 1850s to the 1920s. He features the images, as they have survived, without digital enhancements, from the earliest glass-plate photographs made by “photographic artists” to snapshots taken by amateurs on nitrate film.

Dan Savard is senior collections manager of the Anthropology Audio Visual Collection at the Royal BC Museum. While this is his first book, he has authored several academic papers and given many illustrated presentations on topics related to photography and First Peoples.

Admission to Friends of the BC Archive lectures is $5 for non-members, payable at the door. Copies of the book will also be available for purchase and signing by Dan.
