Hastings Park, 16 July 1955 (2008) is from Stan Douglas’s project Humor, Irony, and the Law, in which the artist re-stages historic moments of unrest in his native Vancouver. This particular image recreates a scene at a Vancouver horse track in 1955 using models dressed in period clothing selected to match the look of color film at that time. The models were photographed between takes while they were off guard. This image is composed of 30 separate shots.
