This documentary short is a portrait of Canadian photographer William Notman. Photography was still in its infancy when he opened his first studio in Montreal in the late 1850s. He rapidly turned his art, and a budding technology, into a highly successful business. Within 5 years he was appointed Photographer to the Queen. Not content with doing mere portraiture, he saw photography as a means of documenting history. With the use of props in his studio, composite photographs, and calling on his background as a trained artist, Notman immortalized the people and places of Canada.

    I was wonderful to find out, through this film, who William Notman was and about how photographs were taken back in the 1800's. I only last week googled Notman Studio Halifax NS to find out who took a photo of my grandfather. Some Halifax Notman Studio photographs are in the NS Archives.
