Biographical history

Gar Lunney worked for the National Film Board (NFB) of Canada's Still Photography Division, which existed from 1939 until 1984.

Established as a branch of the NFB, the Still Photography Division, as its name implied, documented Canadian life through still photographs. Within a decade of its creation, the division employed six full-time photographers, some of whom travelled though British Columbia on assignment. Gar was one of these photographers.

The division and its successor actively circulated these photographs through travelling exhibits.
