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

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.
