He photographed people from many walks of life and from all corners of the province. He photographed the young and the old, the rich and the poor, the employer and the employee, in their homes, workplaces, businesses and public spaces-people going about their daily lives and affecting the lives of others

It is their stories that are told through the archival documents on display in this exhibition.
