  • Short Description

Ted Grant, the undisputed father of Canadian photojournalism, has made a career out of being in the right place at the right time. Over his sixty years in the business, he has immortalized some of the greatest events in history and caught some of the world’s most famous and elusive subjects in rare moments of unaffected humanity. From Pierre Trudeau sliding jubilantly down a banister to Ben Johnson in his brief moment of glory at the 1988 Olympics to Sue Rodriguez in her right-to-die campaign, Grant has amassed a collection of over 300,000 photographs—the largest by a single photojournalist in Canadian history.

Based on over fifty interviews with the man himself (as well as with his family, friends and colleagues across Canada) and extensive research of the Ted Grant Special Collections in Ottawa, this book is both an iconic and an intimate portrait of the second half of the twentieth century, Canada’s coming of age, and the man who saw it all through the lens of his camera.
