Chinatown Through a Wide Lens: The Hidden Photographs of Yucho Chow showcases the once-hidden photographs of Vancouver’s first and most prolific Chinese photographer, Yucho Chow. He operated a commercial studio in the heart of Vancouver’s Chinatown from 1907–1949 and chronicled life during a tumultuous and transformative time in Canadian history.
Catherine Clement is a community curator and designer based in Vancouver’s Chinatown. Her work focuses on uncovering and sharing the lesser-known stories of the community. For five years, she was Curator for the Chinese Canadian Military Museum. In 2017, Catherine art directed a Canada 150 exhibit called the “Chinatown History Windows” which brought history to the streets. For that project, she designed and installed 22 large-format, stylized historical photos and stories onto empty storefront windows.
