This talk will explore the history of Canada’s official First World War photography program from its inception in 1916 to its conclusion in 1919. We will meet each of Canada’s war photographers and examine their individual styles through viewing digitized vintage prints from the war. This investigation of original photographs will allow us to learn more about the materiality and complex lives of printed objects.


CARLA-JEAN STOKES is a writer, lecturer, and curator of war photographs. She has an MA in history from Wilfrid Laurier University, as well as an MA in Photographic Preservation and Collections Management. In 2015, she won the Photographic Historical Society of Canada thesis prize for work, “British Official First World War Photographs, 1916-1918: Arranging and Contextualizing a Collection of Prints at the Art Gallery of Ontario.” She also received the 2019 Elaine Ling Fellowship from the Ryerson Image Centre for her project: “‘Somewhere in France:’ Contextualizing the Ryerson Image Centre’s Collection of Canadian First World War Photographs.”
