George A. Meeres was a professional photographer who moved to Nelson in 1924. Soon after he purchased the Campbell Art Gallery (which would later become Vogue Photographic), which he ran until 1936. Always detailed and meticulous in his work, he later adopted the motto, “a good photo or none”!
Drawn from the Shawn Lamb Archives at Touchstones Nelson, this exhibit will feature reproductions of some of the cellulose nitrate photos he took during his time in Nelson. Startling in their depth and composition, the photos are a testament to his skill and vision as a photographer. They also offer a fascinating glimpse into our community at that moment in time, through the groups, businesses and landscapes he documented.
