Description

A photograph of a bear hunting scene, taken by William McFarlane Notman (1826-1891), in 1860. This elaborately composed scene has been created in the studio using props, costumes and a painted backdrop. William McFarlane Notman was born in Scotland but emigrated to Canada in 1856. He opened a photographic studio in Montreal and later established a successful chain of studios across Canada with branches in Toronto, Ottawa and Halifax. Notman was the official Canadian photographer to Queen Victoria (1819-1901). His work forms an unrivalled record of nineteenth cantury Canadian life, including portraits, landscapes and elaborate studio-based genre scenes of Native Amerians, hunters and trappers.
