Title
William Notman et les imaginaires photographiques de la chasse au XIXe siècle à Montréal
Abstract
The author analyzes three photographic series that Scottish-born Montreal photographer William Notman (1826-1891) devoted to the theme of the hunt. In 1856, Notman opened a photography studio in Montreal and he soon became Canada's premier photographer. Hunters, guides and beasts were among the props that Notman used in his photos to create the illusion of scenes taking place in outdoor settings. However, the photographs were entirely staged in his studio. The author examines the stereotypes and myths conveyed by Notman's representations in these hunting photographs, which she argues were meant to convey the uniqueness of Canada and its potential as a tourism destination for hunting and "wilderness".
