Notice biographique

Reevan Dolgoy was born in Edmonton in 1942, to Dr. Max and Raye Spevakow Dolgoy, the oldest of three boys including brothers Len and Mark. He attended the University of Alberta, receiving his doctorate in Sociology. He became an independent filmmaker and professional photographer. In the mid-seventies, he went down to visit the old Montefiore colony near Sibbald, Alberta, and photographed what remained of it.
