Carte Blanche is a groundbreaking collection of the work of Canada's best photographers, selected by a jury of renowned arts professionals. This unprecedented showcase displays the remarkable--but rarely acknowledged--range of photographic talent in Canada.


Internationally recognized photographers such as Edward Burtynsky, Yuri Dojc, Janieta Eyre, Angela Grauerholz, Rita Leistner, Laura Letinsky, Arnaud Maggs, John Massey, and Christopher Wahl are published alongside the most exciting emerging talents across all genres--fine art, documentary, photojournalism, and edi-torial and commercial photography. Douglas Coupland, whose work appears in the fine art category, contributes a thoughtful and timely foreword to the book.


Carte Blanche is the first Canadian photography compendium of its kind, published by Canada's only charitable arts publishing house, The Magenta Foundation. Carte Blanche will change the perceptions of Canadians--and the world--about photographic achievement in this talented country.


A few artists featured in Carte Blanche will be exhibiting their work in the United States. Jim Breukelman will be in the Whatcom Museum of History & Art in Bellingham, Washington, from January 15, 2006--September 15, 3006. Louie Palu can be found in Boston's Griffin Museum from November 30, 2006--January 14, 2007.
