Biographical history

Joanne Abrahamson was born in Saskatoon on 24 January 1963. She worked for most of her career at SaskTel; after nearly twenty years there she left to pursue a career in Library Studies. Her father was a police photographer, and the family had a darkroom in their home; but she is largely self-taught, and has taken no formal photographic training.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Since 1984, Joanne Abrahamson has travelled extensively throughout Saskatchewan, and has documented virtually every city, town, village, and hamlet in the province, from Aberfeldy to Xena. Her photographs are primarily of grain elevators, schools, churches, railway stations, town offices; in some instances she has returned to a site after a period of several years, providing documentation of changes over time. A few of her images are of rural Alberta and Manitoba, with a few of the northern United States (North Dakota and Montana). In addition, she created a daily photographic journal of the demolition of the YWCA building in Saskatoon. Several of her photographs have been published.
