NITE OWL is an exhibition featuring photographs by Angus McIntyre, curated by the Civic Historian and Author John Atkin.
Angus McIntyre is a retired bus driver of 41 years. A lifelong interest in transportation, lighting and urban history led him to documenting the city scene through photography. As a natural night owl, the late night shift was an obvious choice and his camera often went along for the ride.
In the deserted streets of old East End, he captured the details of light on streetcar tracks about to be ripped from the ground and the faded glory of corner grocery stores caught in the incandescent glow of Strathcona’s street lights. McIntyre’s night-time photographs of emptiness of the city and its streets show us a recent, but seemingly distant, past.
Watch a video here of Angus McIntyre talking about his career as a bus driver, along with some amazing photographs (owned by the City of Vancouver, 125th Anniversary).
