    Forgot to mention Larry Towell. He just won a small exhibition contest in Paris.

    OK. Not a "famous" Canadian photographer (yet) but certainly one of the finest practioner of the medium I have seen come out of this country.

    Name? Ian MacEachern. His portfolio is currently profiled over on Photonet and his images of the 60s taken in Eastern Canada (for the most part) are among the most powerful photographs I have seen in a very long time. Just terrific work (all analog-b&w). His work needs to be elevated to the "famous" level. It's that good IMO.

    Check it out. Worth the detour.

    THANKS Daniel...that made the whole thread worth it!!! Are photographers like diamonds in Canada...laying undiscovered for generations pretty much right out in the open?

    Now that Eric Rose is a television star you may have to add him to the list.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I went to the Picto location to see the show, I was not impressed with the imagery as well with the printing, two images were quite nicely printed otherwise the hype does not match the results.IMO

    What about famous French-Canadian photographers? Sadly not a lot of them. The one I know of and admire is Antoine Desilets. He used to work for La Presse, and wrote quite a nice series of photo technique books. He is frankly the only photographer I have seen that captured something touching about Montreal, without having phoney artsy pretentions like so many in our beautiful province.

    His whole collection is stored at the Quebec National Archives and I plan on visting it some day.
