About Stamp

On July 4, Canada Post issued the final set of stamps in the five-year Canadian Photography series, coinciding with Canada’s 150th. The series showcases some of the best photographers and photography our country has produced over the last 150 years. This stamp belongs to this last set.

Says designer Stéphane Huot, “It was a great privilege and a real pleasure to work on this series from start to finish. I discovered great artists and photographers who made a real impact on the history of Canadian photography. It is definitely one of my proudest philatelic achievements.”

Claire Beaugrand-Champagne, the photographer who took the photo on this stamp, was Quebec’s first female press photographer. She is well known for her documentary images of people who have served as powerful reflections of society.

The photograph on this stamp is called "Ti-Noir Lajeunesse, The Blind Violinist". It was taken in Disraeli, Quebec in 1972.
