Join artist Hubert Hohn and Lelde Muehlenbachs for a special tour on the opening day of the exhibition of his photographs, Hubert Hohn: Edmonton Entrances and Suburban Landscapes. Gain insight into the photographs on display, the exhibition themes and the artist’s practice as well as insights into the original exhibition of some of these works curated by Lelde Muehlenbachs.



Hubert Hohn was born in Arizona in 1944, and studied photography with American master photographers Ansel Adams and Minor White. In the late 1960s, he emigrated to Alberta where he began teaching photography. Through his work at the University of Alberta, the Emma Lake Artists' Workshop and The Banff Centre, and as a curator of photography at The Edmonton Art Gallery, Hohn became an important catalyst for contemporary photographic practice in western Canada. With their attention to the study of types and the impact of urbanism, Hohn’s works can be likened to the work of the “New Topographics,” a group of photographers first named in 1975 following an exhibition at the International Museum of Photography in Rochester, N.Y.
