Notice biographique
Bethune began taking photographs while living in Berwick, Nova Scotia, with her husband, a local physician. Initially she took family snapshots of her pets and children, as well as the local Micmac children who were her husband's patients. Over time Bethune became increasingly interested in pictorialist photography and joined a group based in nearby Kentville. Bethune often hand-coloured her black and white prints and also took colour photographs of the local landscape. Her work was included in numerous Canadian photography salons and also published in a variety of photography magazines. In 1933 Bethune was honoured with the Diploma for Exceptional Photographic Art at the Century of Progress exhibition at the Chicago World's Fair. The National Archives of Canada owns examples of her work.
