In 2003, Presentation House Gallery showed the photographs of a once-famous but completely forgotten British Columbia Pictorialist, H.G.Cox, in an exhibition titled Athens on the Fraser. The book for this exhibition covers the entire range of Cox's practice. Texts by Sylvia Grace Borda, Neil Wedman and curator Bill Jeffries reveal a new slant on life in British Columbia in the 1920s and 1930s.
The catalogue Includes biographical information on the artist, an explanation of the chemical processes used by Pictorialists and information on Cox's involvement in the international salon movement.
