Biographical history

Rosemary Gilliat was born in Hove in the United Kingdom in 1919. She grew up in British Ceylon and went to boarding school in Switzerland. She developed a love of travel and an interest in photography at a young age. In the United Kingdom, she worked in photographic studios as well as taking photographs for her own interest. Gilliat immigrated to Canada in 1952, where she found employment as a photographer. She had an interest in the north and in indigenous peoples which led her to travel throughout the country. Gilliat married Michael Eaton in 1963 and moved to Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. There she became an environmental and cultural activist until her death in 2004.
