Erik (Schack) Christensen, Globe Photographer

Erik Schack photos in the G&M Photo Archives

Toronto. One of the perks of being a Globe and Mail subscriber is their News Photo Archive. I wrote about the archive last summer back on June 25, 2017.

According to the Globe. “Subscribers can explore the work of Erik Schack, one of The Globe and Mail’s most artistic photographers.

“Schack started as a freelancer after WWII, later becoming a staff photographer and changing his name to Erik Christensen to avoid post-war discrimination against Germans.

“Current staff photographer Fred Lum has described Schack’s art as ‘ahead of his time.’ According to Lum, ‘he was Danish before Danish became a style of shooting’.”
