Steve Farmer: PILOT: The Marine Compasses for the Port of Halifax

When: Oct. 23-Nov. 30 2014

Marine pilotage is one of the oldest professions in the world, with reference to pilots found in some of the earliest recorded history. In Europe, a pilot was originally known as a lodesman, derived from the German word for lodestone, an early compass. On a 'weathered' 24hours in April of 2014, photographer Steve Farmer spends a day having un-paralelled access to the inner workings aboard the Pilot Boat. Opening reception on Thursday, October 23, 7pm. Artist talk on Wednesday, November 12, 7pm.
