Mallard’s shots will show at Zocalo Café

Starting Sept. 7, photographs from Old Montreal, Halifax, New Brunswick, North India, Hawaii, and the Comox Valley will be on display

A COLIN MALLARD photo shows two boys rushing to the top of a steep metal protrusion on the wharf in Halifax. Some of his images are on display at Zocalo Café in Courtenay until Sept. 7.

Local writer and photographer Colin Mallard will exhibit some of his most recent images at Zocalo Café in Courtenay until Sept. 7.

On display will be photographs from Old Montreal, Halifax, New Brunswick, North India, Hawaii, and the Comox Valley. Come and enjoy.

Mallard will also be an exhibitor for the Art and Photography in the Garden at Milner Gardens on Aug. 10th and 11 in Qualicum Beach.

Mallard began using a camera growing up in England after the war. He used double exposure to place his mother in a milk bottle.

Later, his black and white images of the old Boston wharfs in Massachusetts with its sun bleached wooden piers, rope and giant capstans from the sailing era, provided material for a month-long exhibition in Copley Square.

Since then he has photographed life as a treeplanter in the late ’70s, documented seiners and packers working the northwest coast.

For the past several years his images have been admired and purchased by those attending the Kitty Coleman Woodland Gardens annual events: The Art and Bloom Festivals in May and the Artisans Festival on Labor Day Weekends as well as local venues.

Mallard is also an award-winning writer and novelist. His most recent book, Stillpoint, was one of four finalists in the 2013 Next Generation Indie Book Awards in the category Fiction over 80,000 words.

Mallard will appear at Chapters Bookstore in Victoria on Aug. 17 with writer Bennet Coles, a former naval officer and peacekeeper along the Lebanese/Israeli border. They will discuss, among other things, war and peace in Palestine.
