In 1963, Warren Langford, a Second World War air force veteran and career public servant, travelled through Europe, North America, and Africa as part of the National Defence College's curriculum of Cold War training. During this time he bought a camera and produced some 200 slides of his travels. In A Cold War Tourist and His Camera, his art historian daughter and political scientist son bring his photographs - an unexpected combination of iconic images of Cold War dangers and touristic snapshots - back into view. Martha Langford and John Langford examine their fat photographic experience, revealing the complexity of both the images and their creator. A Cold War Tourist and His Camera stages the family slide show as you've never seen it before.
