Photography and Movies during the Great Depression in Canada?

Hey what is an example of photography and movies during the Great Depression in Canada? I cannot find anything for photography. Movies - the closest thing is Boris Karloff who's a Canadian actor, but his most famous works were American films so I don't think that can work.

Books would be "Wasting Heritage" by Irene Baird and Radio would be the CRBC, but I don't know anything about photography or movies.


By the way I am looking for some Canadian photographers and possibly some photos for the photography part.

    The Great Depression in Canada lasted for most of the 1930s. Pictures of relief camps, soup kitchens, protest marches and drought are vivid reminders of the pain and desperation of those years.

    The Great Depression was felt across Canada, although its impact varied from region to region. Areas dependent on mining, logging, fishing and farming were especially hard hit, and drought on the Prairies left the rural population destitute. Unskilled workers and young men faced continuous unemployment and took to the road in search of work. By 1993 more than a quarter of Canadian workers were unemployed. Many others had their hours or wages cut.

    Governments in Canada were slow to respond to the desperate economic and social conditions. Until the Great Depression, government intervened as little as possible, letting the free market take care of the economy. Social welfare was left to churches and charities.

    This is the best photography course online:


    You can be like the masses of humanity and buy a camera you can afford that has auto this and that for worry free picture taking. And learn through trial and error how to use something like aperture or shutter priority auto modes or even attempt to use the thing on full manual mode.

    You seem to know already there is some thinking to using a camera and to take pictures. A good place to start is by reading the owners manual that comes with a camera. Read the information and look at the illustrations with part names and look at the real camera. Handle the camera and take pictures. Let me rephrase that. Take pictures to learn how to use the camera and maybe even to keep some. Don't start with important stuff you cannot photograph over again such as birthdays, a toddlers first steps. That puts picture taking out of the learning phase and puts the pressure and emphasis to taking pictures for real and to keep.

    These first pictures are for you to learn how to use your camera. And you have learned how to use your camera when you can take pictures with it and can teach others how to use it. Honest. You can also go to a college in your area and take a beginning photography course. There you will be taught the basics even a pro must learn and do in their work. Camera handling and use, taking exposures with film and/or digital cameras, and maybe even some photo assignments to get some real time learning. In this learning do not take serious pictures you must keep as that detracts from the learning aspect of the class. Do so only if you have mastered the use of your camera before class is over.

    It's like growing up in a way. And I am happy you know there is a way to learn how to use a camera and take pictures. It's like learning how to drive I suppose. Someone can teach you or you can get taught at a driving school. Both will get you a drivers liscense. One though will really teach you the fundamentals you can use for the rest of your driving career.
