Today, we're pointing you towards all things Slow Seconds. Author Ronald Rees has some events coming up very soon, and we wouldn't want you to miss your chance to get a signed copy of the essential 19th-century New Brunswick photography collection.
The first book of George Taylor's (1838-1913) photographs, Slow Seconds presents a curated selection of one hundred photographs together with an account of the beginnings of photography and Taylor's life and work. Drawing on the knowledge and expertise of Indigenous guides, Taylor travelled not only through settled parts of New Brunswick, but also into the wilderness of the north, providing views of hitherto unfamiliar and unknown terrain and helping to popularize the outdoors as a venue for canoeing, hunting and fishing.
Be sure to pick up your signed copy of this collection when Ronald Rees visits Brunswick Square's Coles store in Saint John on December 6th! Ronald will be signing copies from 12:00 pm until 2:00 pm.
Can't make it to Saint John? Never fear; Ronald will also be signing copies of Slow Seconds at his book launch in Saint Andrews from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, at the Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre on December 10th.
If you've got someone in your circle that has a knack for photography, history, New Brunswick, or especially all three, be sure to jump on the opportunity to get a signed copy of Slow Seconds this holiday season.
