The career of the man we all call the "Father of Canadian photojournalism," Ted Grant, spans more than 60 years. He won awards for those iconic images of Pierre Trudeau sliding down the banister and Ben Johnson back when he was the fastest man on earth. But perhaps most importantly, Ted is a great person. I consider myself fortunate that Ted calls me a friend. A few weeks ago we went for lunch.
Yes, that is the finger that pressed the shutter on hundreds of thousands of images stored in the Canadian archives. I hope that at 86 years of age I am as vibrant a personality and still behind the camera. Thanks for the memories Ted.
