This temporary exhibit showcases the remarkable talents of photojournalists who have contributed to Lethbridge’s visual narrative over the years. Featuring the works of six photographers (Orville Brunelle, Lloyd Knight, David Rossiter, Ian Martens, Alejandra Pulido-Guzman, and Ose Irete), this exhibition chronicles moments from 1933 to the present day.

Delving into three distinct “eras” of photography and photojournalism—the Analogue Era, Transitional Era, and Digital Era—the exhibit pairs two photographers with each period, illustrating the technological shifts from film to digital cameras.

Galt Gardens at Night, ca. 1940-1951 During his time at the Herald, Lloyd Knight captured this artistic shot of a solitary bench under a light in Galt Gardens at night. Galt Museum & Archives | Akaisamitohkanao’pa, 20151006-1212
Moreover, the exhibit underscores the evolving landscape of newspaper journalism, where the traditional division between photographers and journalists has blurred, with photojournalism now a prevalent form of storytelling.

Extra! Extra! presents a diverse array of photographs and articles, serving both as a historical archive and a platform for artistic expression. It aims to celebrate the work of photographers and the unique images they have captured, whether using pricey film or a simple phone camera.

By demonstrating the power of being in the right place at the right time, this exhibit invites visitors to witness the evolution of photography in Lethbridge and engage in interactive activities. Join us at the Galt Museum & Archives | Akaisamitohkanao’pa (eternal gathering place) from February 17 to August 5, 2024, to experience “Extra! Extra!” firsthand.
