> 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 previously unpublished or exhibited works.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!

> fifty

> 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
