Old Bones | New Bones

On display June 9 to August 18, 2018 in The Sunroom at Central Library, Old Bones | New Bones by Adam Lanigan is a photographic exploration of Halifax's changing urban landscape.

Development has undergone a dramatic increase in pace over the last few years, but, in the demolition and reconstruction of pieces of the city, what (if anything) is being lost along the way? Is Halifax’s character and identity tied up in the architecture and density of its neighbourhoods? By replacing the old bones with new ones, is the body changed?
