Vancouver November 16, 2013. PHSC member Dr Ted Grant sent me a note today mentioning his recent book Sixty Years of Legendary Photojournalism. Written by Thelma Fayle with a forward by two prominent conservatives, ex-Prime Minister Joe Clark and his wife Maureen McTeer. The book is available in either traditional paper format or the new eBook style. Both are Published by Heritage House.
I looked up a cover shot of the book and who was featured, but none other than Liberal ex-Prime Minister, the late Pierre Trudeau sliding down a banister! So if you have tired of the shenanigans here in Toronto (where Ford is a four lettered word…) then take a read and peek at this wonderful paperback – 8×10 inches in size and 224 pages long.
“In 2014 Ted Grant’s one man exhibition from the book and a launch to the USA photo community will be opened in the LEICA GALLERY in New York, 25 April 2014 with a 4 month gallery showing! At this point in time the book is a smashing success with well over 300 copies sold in a single hour at the book launch! :-).
“The book will introduce this photographer who basically unknown by name, but many can recall his famous photographs like that of Pierre Trudeau sliding down the stair case railing of the Chateau Laurie Hotel in Ottawa, or Ben Johnson’s winning moment at the 88 Seoul Summer Olympics (as fleeting as it was)!”
To learn more about Dr Ted and his exhibition in theBig Apple next year, visit Heritage House. PS. it is a real pleasure to see three PHSC members, each with a book related to photography and in print at the same time!
