Museum of Nostalgia

April 1, 2017 - April 28, 2017

Artists statement:

Museum of Nostalgia constitutes an incomplete survey of a collective past while emphasizing the fading uniqueness of our towns and cities. With these photographs I hope to share a sense of community, loneliness, and nostalgia through the reevaluation of the ubiquitous and the unique.


Jesse Cahill is a professional musician and photographer living in New Westminster BC. He studied music at McGill University and is widely recognized for his contributions to the Canadian jazz and creative music scene. As a photographer Jesse works primarily with a medium format film camera and sights the work of the classic American street and documentary photographers as his primary influence.

About the work:

The photos in this show were made between 2013 and 2017 in towns that I visited while on tour. For the most part they are locations that were within walking distance of either our hotel or performance venue. There are a few however that involved stops in the middle of nowhere and the patience and good humour of my bandmates.

All of these photos, from exposure to printing, were made using tradition methods of photography.

Join Jesse at the opening reception April 1st from 1 to 4pm
