New Page Added: the Hamilton Artists Inc. 1981

View a slide show of my very first one man exhibition at the Hamilton Artist Inc. on James St. North, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, July 1981.  The images show their age at times particularly the installation shots.  I photographed the images using a basic SLR camera and what I hoped was a good quality slide film and of course natural light.  I’m amazed I thought to do it and the resulting images still exist today.
