Overview

The 1960s defined a generation. Young people across North America rebelled against the conservative, consumer-driven society of the 1950s and spawned a social revolution that was felt the world over. 
      At the age of eighteen, with camera in hand he hit the road on a cross-country photographic journey that took him from Winnipeg to Toronto and Ottawa. All Our Changes: Images from the Sixties Generation chronicles that journey and the shared experiences of a generation that was redefining the nature of personal identity and societal responsibility.
     All Our Changes is a stunning collection of 160 black and white photographs taken between 1968 and 1970. These images capture the innocence and earnestness of the early Canadian hippie movement, from political protests and speakers’ corners, to Festival Express and the Mariposa Folk Festival. Joni Mitchell is here, as are the Guess Who, but so are everyday kids hitching rides, hanging out, and, one by one, forever changing the Canadian political and cultural landscape.
