Hi Crew,
In case you have some spare time and like a glass of Champagne here's the 
announcement of an exhibition of my medical side photoghaphy at the LUZ 
Photo Gallery in Victoria.
Dr. ted.

October 2009

This forthcoming exhibition and book are two of the great highlights at L?z 
Gallery this year. Guest curator Duane Prentice combed through the archives 
of Ted's finest images documenting the world of medicine and has put 
together an outstanding collection of some of Ted's iconic images alongside 
previously unpublished or exhibited works.

For years I have felt that a gallery needed to do a retrospective of Ted 
Grant's work documenting the medical profession, and for years none have 
done it? Until now!

Dr. Ted Grant is truly the farther of Canadian photojournalism. His fifty 
plus year career has taken him from covering the Six Day War in the Middle 
East to the Summer Olympic Games in Munich or the children of Chernobyl. He 
has published seven books, has 280,000 negatives in the National Archive, 
has lectured at the Leica International Seminar for 15 years, and in 1999 he 
received the CAPIC Lifetime Achievement Award in photography along with the 
great portrait photographer Yousuf Karsh. In November 2008, the University 
of Victoria granted and honorary Doctorate of Laws in recognition of Ted's 
contribution to photography and his dedication to teaching.

Through all of this Ted Grant has remained a humble and compassionate 
documentarian, with a keen eye who found a deep personal connection and 
satisfaction in documenting the work of the medical profession. This work 
produced two significant books: Doctor's Work, The Legacy of Sir William 
Osler, and Women in Medicine, A Celebration of their Work; co-authored with 
fellow photojournalist Sandy Carter.

The exhibition opens to the public on October 22nd, and we have scheduled a 
film screening of The Art of Observation produced for Bravo Canada by 
Asterisk Productions, and evening in conversation with Ted on October 29th.

Limited edition exhibition book, available October 21st, 2009.
