Exposure – Alberta’s Photography Festival Reception
February 15, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Small Town Sundays
In Small Town Sundays, we travel to dying prairie towns. We are both from Alberta small towns and have mixed feelings about our experiences living in them.
Sunday traditionally was a day of religion and socializing, of meeting at church and perhaps having a coffee with a neighbour afterwards. The main street would be alive with people going about their day. But with the move to industrialized food systems, many small-scale farmers have sold to larger companies and left the area with corresponding decreases in school enrolment, healthcare services, and economic activity in nearby small towns. The towns we visit on Sunday are generally quiet and still.
