-her book titled "Ted Grant 60 years of Legendary Photojournalism" will be showcased along with many of Ted Grant's actual photographs ( many of which are in the book as well) Ted & Thelma will be there too. Here is the cover of the book :
Ted Grant: Sixty Years of Legendary Photojournalism
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 Grant ,and his exhibition in the Big 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!
