Stanley Triggs

Canadian, 1928 -

Stanley Triggs was born in British Columbia and attended the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara with the goal of becoming a photographer for the Forest Service. Instead of joining the service, however, he became a curator of the Notman Photographic Archives at McCord Museum soon after finishing his degree in Fine Arts and Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. He remained at McCord Museum until his retirement in 1993, but continued to photograph extensively in the forests of British Columbia. The series he took during the summers of 1969 to 1972 are held in the permanent collection of the Nelson and District Museum.
