Heritage Lecture – Chinatown Through a Wide Lens: The Hidden Photographs of Yucho Chow – CANCELLED

March 31 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Hycroft, 1489 McRae Avenue
Vancouver, BC V6H 1V1 Canada

Chinatown Through a Wide Lens: The Hidden Photographs of Yucho Chow

Vancouver’s first and most prolific Chinese photographer, Yucho Chow, operated a commercial studio in the heart of Chinatown from 1907–1949. He chronicled life during a tumultuous and transformative time in Canadian history and captured the faces of early marginalized communities including South Asians, Black Canadians, Indigenous residents, mixed-race families and Eastern European immigrants. For some communities, he was the only photographer willing to take their portraits. Sadly, his negatives – and the individual stories and history they chronicled – were all discarded when his studio closed. Chinatown curator Catherine Clement spent over eight years uncovering Yucho Chow’s photographs – one family at a time, one photo at a time, one story at a time.

TICKETS
UWCV Members & students $10
Members Guests $15
Public $16
Tickets will be sold at the door (cash only). 

Please register with the office by Friday, March 27th. 

Please note this event has been cancelled until further notice.
