Renowned photojournalist Newlands seared his insights of cultural life in Canada onto film. Newlands’ work is one of the most important but little-known collections of social documentary photographs of the swinging 60s. Lovingly rescued, preserved, and digitized, these photo essays reveal his beloved home province’s cultural revolution in Quebec Rising; his adopted city of Toronto at Midnight; Niagara Falls–Signs of the Times; and people and their zest for cars in Auto Focus. Portraits of Pierre Trudeau rowing to Cuba, Leonard Cohen, Ian Tyson, Ronnie Hawkins, and business mogul K.C. Irving at his oil and lumber sites circa 1965 are included. Collectors interested in a private viewing of Newlands’ extensive vintage collection should contact curator Dolores Gubasta.
