Opening Doors to the Past

Tony Gallant is a freelance photographer with a keen interest in documenting local history. He has lived most of his life in Prince County at the western end of Canada’s smallest province and birthplace of Confederation, Prince Edward Island.


In 2012 Tony began documenting properties that have been abandoned – and continue to disappear from the landscape. He describes these dilapidated old houses, barns and buildings as “little time capsules dotted all across our Island.”

Tony and his wife Judy live on a three-acre woodlot in Brockton and have raised four children: Cory, Jamie, Amy Lynn, and Tyler.

Mr. Gallant’s show Door to the Past opens at The Guild on August 10th.
