Dr. Ted Grant: A Canadian National Treasure
Be sure to attend the February 18 meeting. Dr Ted Grant, one of Canada’s greatest photographers, and author Thelma Fayle, will entertain and inform us. Ted, who is referred to as the father of Canadian photojournalism, has had an esteemed career creating iconic images such as that of Pierre Trudeau sliding down a bannister in the Chateau Laurier Hotel, Ottawa, in 1968. Thelma is a professional writer who created Ted’s biography entitled, Ted Grant: Sixty Years of Legendary Photojournalism. Thelma will share how she came to write the book. Ted will present a slide overview of his work. We can look forward to hearing some of the stories behind the famous photographs.
"Ted Grant: Sixty Years of Legendary Photojournalism is an excellent book about one of Canada's most esteemed photojournalists. And it’s another one I’d put on the required reading list if I were to teach a photography seminar!"
