> 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 previously unpublished or exhibited works.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!

> 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.

> documentarian, with a keen eye who found a deep personal connection and
