Off to explore Montreal this weekend, including a visit to the McCord Museum.
Sébastien Hudon, the Artistic Director of La Bandé Video (who’s offices are located downstairs within the Méduse complex) told me about the museum and its extensive online archive of over 80,000 photographs, which he uses regularly and which are available for the public to access through their website. Link below… Sébastien specifically recommended the images of the Paisley born Scots-Canadian William Notman.
