Ted Grant is regarded as one of Canada’s greatest photographers. In 1999 he was presented with the lifetime achievement award by the Canadian Association of Photographers and Illustrators in Communication. More than 280,000 of his images, representing a 60-year career, are collected in the National Archives of Canada — the largest such archive for a Canadian photographer.
“Quite frankly, it’s been 65 years of a love affair that you cannot imagine, It’s as simple as that.Today you seem to have more and more people who are more inclined to be involved with the techy aspect and they want to know all the numbers and everything.
