About the Exhibition

Norman Kreye worked for almost thirty years as a bus driver for the County of Parkland.  It was not simply in his spare time that he took photographs. Rather, he had an intense desire to document everything, all of the time, even whilst he was working. For instance, Frosh 1965 is a series of images of high school students, spanning the 1960s and 1970s, in rural Alberta on their way to school during initiation week. Curated by his grand-daughter, Krstyal Kreye, from Norman's unique collection of 35mm slides, these photographs offer an interesting retrospective glimpse into student life during that period.  The collection is meant to contribute to the story of "frosh" by briefly looking back on snapshots from its various historical manifestations.
