Extended Label Info: Max Didluck, Barber, Regina Sask, is a photograph taken by Sandra Semchuk taken in the early 70’s of a barber, smoking while having tea. Although her subject appears cool and distant, Semchuk has an extraordinary ability to portray her subjects as interesting, relatable human beings with a story to tell. Semchuk often photographed subjects of domestic and prairie life and this work is no exception, as it highlights a character of everyday life. Sandra Semchuk was born in Saskatchewan in 1948. She received her BFA from the University of Saskatchewan in 1970. In 1983, she received a master’s degree in photography from the University of New Mexico. A founding member of the Photographers’ Gallery, Saskatoon, Semchuk also teaches at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver. Her work has been exhibited at Presentation House Gallery, North Vancouver; Photographers’ Gallery, Saskatoon; Prince George Art Gallery; Coburg Gallery, Vancouver; Mackenzie Art Gallery, Regina; and Concordia University, Montreal.
