What makes Waterloo Region unique? What defines a sense of place?

Phil Elsworthy's new photo book Through a Changing Landscape - Photographing place and Community in Waterloo Region showcases seventy-five carefully chosen photographs that depict the elements that collectively make Waterloo Region's urban landscape different from any other Ontario city. Our community features industrial architecture in the heart of the city, Pennsylvania-German influences, and notable Mid-Century Modernist buildings that University of Waterloo Architecture Professor Rick Haldenby calls “the vernacular architecture of Waterloo Region.”

Sense of place has been defined as our relationship with places in terms of the emotions, personal experiences, stories they evoke. Elsworthy's photographs dramatically illustrate how the built form can attract or repel. He invites us into each of his photographs to experience and interpret scenes and settings for ourselves. Over the course of the book, we come to see how community and sense of place are intrinsically and vitally connected.

This program is presented in partnership with Words Worth Books.
