SIGMA 50MM F1.4 EX DG HSM LENS
In 1968 when Russian tanks rolled into Prague, Yuri left Czechoslovakia and settled in Toronto where he embarked on a four-decade journey from refugee to internationally acclaimed photographer. His work is part of the National Gallery of Canada and the Slovak National Museum’s permanent collections, and America’s Library of Congress recently acquired a number of selections for their photography collection. In 2010, a retrospective of Dojc’s work was exhibited at Bratislava’s Mirbach Palace, and Honour, his sixth solo book which pays homage to Canadian WWII veterans, was published.
Created in partnership with Chartwell Seniors Housing, Honour includes more than 35 stunning black-and-white and colour images photographed by Dojc using Sigma’s 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM lens. This high-performance, large aperture lens ensured sharp images with high contrast and superior peripheral brightness, making it the ideal choice for Dojc to capture the compelling portraits that would visually complement the intimate memories shared by the veterans photographed.
This gallery presents a selection of photos from Honour, which can be purchased for $10 at www.chartwellreit.ca or at Chartwell Seniors homes across Canada. Net proceeds will be donated to Canadian organizations committed to the remembrance of Canada’s veterans.
