Sacred Places in Rural Saskatchewan
Presented by: Larry Easton
April 2, 2019 - June 23, 2019
Legacy of Worship features photographs by Larry and Dorothy Easton and resulted in 'Legacy of Worship: Sacred Places in Rural Saskatchewan', a coffee-table book by Easton, writer Margaret Hryniuk, and archivist Frank Korvemaker. Larry has selected a number of images from the book to be featured in this exhibition.
Since the 1970s, Larry Easton has been an active photographer. He has been a member of the Regina Photo Club for forty years. He is one of only two members of the Club to receive its Prestige Award for photographic achievement. He has received numerous competition awards and recognition for his photographic works. As well, his works have appeared in Prairies North and West World magazines, in projects for Saskatchewan Tourism and the Regina Chamber of Commerce, and in educational books.
Lawrence Francis (Larry) Easton was born on the family farm near Wawota, Saskatchewan. Thanks to his mother's love of photography using her box camera, Larry began taking pictures during his university days in the '60s. He would develop film at an off-campus lab, at the back of a corner store. In 1964 he received his Electronic Engineering Technologist diploma from Saskatchewan Technical Institute, Moose Jaw. He was employed as an engineering manager with Sasktel in Regina until his retirement in 1993. Larry continues to work closely with the Regina Photo Club, organizing contests and exhibitions and sharing his experience with new members.
