Working in the Woods Today - Exhibition announcement

NOTE: this post is excerpted from a Campbell River Museum press release.

New Exhibit at the Campbell River Museum 
January 27 to April 22, 2012

"This photographic exhibition features superb images and informative text about the men and women working in BC’s coastal forest industry in the 21st century by photographer and writer Hans Peter Meyer.   The exhibition is part of a bigger project to produce a large format photo book about BC’s coastal forest industry." (For more information, visit

"Meyer says that there is an abundance of images from the 'glory days of logging,' but almost nothing has been published since the 1950s about the industry as a place where real men and women work (in remote locations, and often under dangerous conditions).
"Be sure to come and see these outstanding photos while there are here."

Thanks to the Campbell River Museum for your support of this project!

I am currently working with a team to select the images and layout of the show. Please extend an invitation to anyone who has a connection with the forest industry, to join us for the official opening (date not yet set - watch this space!) or simply to take in the show during February, March, and April 2012. The museum has an extensive historical collection of the region's forest industry.
