A museum in Calgary is showcasing the photographs of James Brady, a Metis man who is better known for his activism and being the driving forced behind the creation of settlements in Alberta.

Brady is well-known to the Indigenous communities he travelled to in Alberta and Saskatchewan because he snapped photos as a way of keeping record of the people he met along the way.

Those photographs are now on display to the public at Calgary’s Glenbow museum.

“In many was he is the first, if not the first Indigenous photographer in Canada. A lot has been written about his politics, but not a lot has been done on his photography,” said Paul Seesequasis in Saskatoon, who curated the exhibit ‘Enclosing Some Snapshots.”

“Curating this was very exciting for me. It’s the first time James Brady’s photos are being exhibited in gallery, in a museum space.”
