Building BC: The Photography of Leonard Frank and Otto Landauer

Few collections capture the early development history of British Columbia as comprehensively as the photography of Leonard Frank and Otto Landauer.  From mining and logging camps to major construction projects, historic events, and the natural beauty of the landscapes, Leonard Frank documented all corners of the province from 1900 until his death in 1944.

Otto Landauer, who purchased the studio after Frank’s death, carried on his legacy documenting the post-war growth of Vancouver, including the construction of many landmark buildings and structures, such as the Second Narrows Bridge and the Queen Elizabeth Theatre.

Michael Schwartz, Director of Community Engagement at the Jewish Museum and Archives BC, will explore their work and legacy through their remarkable photographs.
