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.”

Gilbert Duclos, the photographer who took the photo on this stamp, has focused his lens on scenes that reflect his passion for street humanism. Throughout his career as a professional photographer, his photographic series have depicted many of the Western world’s cities. His work has been featured in numerous publications and exhibitions. His portrait of jazz pianist Oscar Peterson was on a stamp Canada Post issued in 2005. Duclos was also a letter carrier and truck driver for Canada Post in the 1970s.

The photograph on this stamp is called "Enlacées, Montréal, 1994".
