Book Launch: Leaving Good Things Behind, with Darren Calabrese 

7:00 PM, Thursday 15 Jun 2023 ADT

Centre culturel Aberdeen – 2nd Floor | Aberdeen Cultural Centre

Join us for an in-conversation event featuring documentary and editorial photojournalist Darren Calabrese, as a part of the book launch tour of his first publication, Leaving Good Things Behind: Photographs of Atlantic Canada (McClelland & Stewart, 2023). The event will be moderated by local photographer and artist Annie France Noël, and books will be available for purchase from Tidewater Books.

When a family tragedy pulled photojournalist Darren Calabrese back to Atlantic Canada, the region both he and his wife once called home, he was confronted with a sense of profound grief. But, on returning to the rural property where he grew up, as a new father, he rediscovered an appreciation for the geographies, histories, and people of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador, turning his lens to explore the tension between the perseverance of tradition and the inevitability of change.

Darren Calabrese’s work led him into communities across the eastern provinces, who welcomed him to document the inextricable relationship between people, their stories, and the landscapes—equally beautiful and harsh—where they live and work. The result is an astonishing, evocative collection of curated photographs and archival images, with personal essays on family, coming home, loss, and his experiences exploring the region woven in throughout.

This event is sponsored by Ivan’s Camera and is presented in partnership with Galerie Sans Nom, McClelland & Stewart, and Tidewater Books.
