p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Winnipeg


I've visited quite a few buildings over the years, and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights is one of the most extraordinary buildings I've seen. It's almost impossible to describe the interior...or to photograph the experience of being in the interior of the building effectively. Walking through the museum is like undergoing a journey. You enter through the Great Hall and climb illuminated alabaster ramps from level to level. Eventually, you reach the Tower of Hope near the spire where you get a 360 degree view of the skyline. The museum is immense. There are 15,000 tiles of alabaster along the ramps...making it the biggest project ever done with that material. The building itself cost just over $350 million at the time of construction.

Photography can be a challenge. Tripods are not permitted. The interior is quite dark and is also crowded with visitors.

1- Museum in back of the Winnipeg sign


2- I parked across the river and walked over the pedestrian bridge when I visited the museum.


3- The building lends itself to architectural abstract images. I took some liberties in Photoshop with this one.


4- The exhibits are bright and colorful. That's one of the illuminated alabaster ramps on the left.


5- Ramps connect the various level...and if I recall correctly the museum has 8 levels.


6- Visitors often rest on benches along the way. Elevators are available for those who don't wish to climb, but the ramps certainly add to the overall experience.


7- More ramps...to capture this shot, I held my Nikon Z9 at arms length over the railing. I relied on the extended rear LCD panel to compose and focus. Image stabilization was my friend as well. Thankfully, I didn't drop the Z9 and lens multiple stories!


8- Star Blanket created by those attending a national Indigenous youth conference.


9- Staircase nearing the Asper Tower of Hope


10- The museum is a prominent part of the Winnipeg skyline.


Thanks for looking...
Glenn
