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.”
Robert Bourdeau, the photographer who took the photo on this stamp, built a reputation for producing images taken with large-format cameras. His photographs are found in major collections in Canada and the United States. His work focuses on the revealing details of subjects ranging from traditional landscapes to architecture and still life.
The photograph on this stamp is called "Ontario, Canada, 1989".
