Jack Goldsmith

Travel photographs by Jack Goldsmith. Jack Goldsmith (1949-2014) was McGill’s photographer since 1976; he co-founded the Montreal Carpet Appreciation Society in 1978; he was a rug and rare book collector on West and East Asian art, travel and T.E. Lawrence. He studied photography at Dawson College, graduated from Concordia University in Anthropology and taught both subjects intermittently. At the end of his life he was preparing a photo exhibition: portraits of people, children and characters of good cheer taken during his travels around the globe. His closest friends have completed this project by adding some architectural landscapes and sites. Vernissage: Thursday 5 June at 4:00 p.m.  Show runs from June 6 through 13. Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
