Discover the rich history of the 77th  Wentworth Regiment through the lives of the men who trained and fought with the militia. The display will focus on the accomplishments of the Regiment. You will learn about the influence of the 77th on the community of Dundas, and discover what it would have been like to be a member of the Regiment during late 19th century.

What to expect:

Seeing and Feeling Reflections Presented by Rick McKenzie, Rob Robichaud, Rolph King

 

Rick, Rob and Rolph came together several years ago through a mutual desire to photograph the natural aspects of the Niagara escarpment, specifically the many  magnificent local waterfalls.

Since that time we have concentrated our focus on more than just the beauty of moving water but on what we each see and feel in this liquid medium.  By exploring our inner feelings along with the play of light on rivers, lakes, still ponds and puddles in the form of reflections, we have attempted to express something personal yet tied to a common theme.

Rolph’s abstract reflective photography, Rob’s selective focal and exposure techniques and Rick’s use of composite imagery have each contributed in a different way to our vision and fascination with water.  In many respects these images continue to highlight our beautiful region in our own unique fashion.
