Come from Away – Island Origins

Despite its homogeneous appearance, the population of Prince Edward Island is made up of a mixture of cultures from around the globe. Each forms an important part of Island society and Island traditions. Who are these people, where are they from and how did they come to live on Prince Edward Island?  Alanna Jankov has explored their experiences and has told their stories through a series of photographs. Each photograph is accompanied by a short narrative that sets the scene, shares the artist’s impressions and chronicles the subject’s experience.

The Show opened in June 2006 at the Confederation Centre of the Arts and remains in their permanent collection
