In Ironworks, hand-forged iron and photography meld together to create a body of images honouring the simplicity and function of nineteenth-century blacksmith-made objects, many discovered at the locations where they had been cast aside. Together Holownia’s photographs and Sanger’s poems reveal the tangibility of light and dark in the obsolescent and rejected. Printed in offset lithography with seven tri-tone reproductions.


Thaddeus Holownia is emeritus professor of fine arts at Mount Allison University, an elected fellow of the Royalty Society of Canada, and a winner of the Strathbutler Award. His photographs have been exhibited at galleries throughout North America and Europe.

Peter Sanger chose Nova Scotia as his home more than 30 years ago, after ranging far and wide. He lives in a period farmhouse in a rural community. His first book of poetry was published in 1983. He currently teaches English at the Nova Scotia College of Agriculture.
