Photographer Dave Heath's Obituary Written by James Adams of The Globe and Mail

But among connoisseurs and historians of the medium, photographers and critics, Mr. Heath stands among the giants. One famous curator, John Szarkowski, “discoverer” of Diane Arbus and William Eggleston, lauded Mr. Heath’s photos for their “great emotional force,” for their combination of “the small-camera approach with a rare formal intensity and precision.” - James Adams, July 2016

Hot Docs, CONTACT Photo Festival, PhotoED and the Stephen Bulger Gallery Co-Present "The Great Photographers Series: An American Journey; In Robert Frank's Footsteps"

Date: Sunday July 24th
Time: 11:00am
Location: Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema
506 Bloor St. West
Toronto
Tickets: $16 (Members: $12, $10, Free)
 
The Great Photographers:
Become acquainted with some of history's greatest photographers in this screening and discussion series.
Robert Frank's The Americans transformed the landscape of contemporary photography. An exile from Europe, Frank criss-crossed America with his camera, searching for the uncomfortable truths of his adopted home; the resulting book was the defining work of photographic art in the 20th century. Fifty years later, French director Philippe Seclier decided to follow in his footsteps, retracing his path step by step. He tracks down the subjects of the photos, while also eliciting thoughts and comments from painter Ed Ruscha, photographer Raymond Depardon, and a series of leading historians and curators. From Texas to Montana, Nebraska to Louisiana, New York to San Francisco, An American Journey is a 15,000 mile odyssey through contemporary America—beautifully capturing the spirit of Robert Frank's legendary journey.

Paul Roth, Director of the Ryerson Image Centre, will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion and Q&A on the work of Robert Frank.
