Born in China in 1883, Chow Dong Hoy emigrated to Canada in 1902. Missing the gold rush, he nevertheless settled in the far reaches of the British Columbia interior where he eventually established himself as town photographer. Over the years that followed he took hundreds of photographs of the Chinese, Native and Caucasian members of this isolated community. The accompanying essay provides a close historical reading of these long-lost, startling photographs that bring to life a seldom told tale of modern history. 96 full page duotone reproductions.
