About the Stamps

The PERMANENT™-rate stamp Hot Properties #1 is part of the 1987 series of environmental portraits created by Jim Breukelman (1941−). In the series, Breukelman photographed unique Vancouver properties that were disappearing due to redevelopment.

The international-rate stamp features 12 portraits of Ottawa photographer Yousuf Karsh. It is a detail from part of the 48 Views series created by Arnaud Maggs (1926-2012) in the early 1980s. The series consisted of portraits of prominent Canadian artists, whom Maggs photographed 48 times each.

The U.S.-rate stamp is Small Basement Camera Shop, circa 1937 by polymath artist Rodney Graham (1949−) in 2011. Recreating a scene he found in an antique store photo, he poses as the shop owner.

The PERMANENT™-rate stamp Andor Pasztor is a diptych pairing a 1978 portrait of Pasztor and his bedroom wall of photographs. Pasztor was the close friend of the father of social documentary photographer Gábor Szilási (1928−).
