In a preface to her book 'One Hundred Flowers', Georgia O’Keeffe describes how
everyone sees flowers “as small”. So, she paints them big … “surprising the
viewer into taking time to look at it”. This is exactly how Ted photographs
flowers. The following images illustrate the natural beauty and the unique form
and color of every flower. This photographic study spans several years and
several countries. Master printer Carol Fonde’s enthusiastic collaboration is
represented here by these images selected by curator Hilda Yasseri.
This portfiolio is represented in New York City by June Bateman Fine Arts .
In 2012, Ted photographed the Provinces and Territories of his new home for a show and auction benefiting the Herbie Fund at Toronto's Sick Kids Hospital. The images that form this gallery were published in the 2012 Edition of OCEANA.
"...and when the train plunged into a tunnel under New York City, with its

come here to see something old, but the Portugese are full of zeal to show you
Letter from Portugal in Neal Slavin's : PORTUGAL
(Lustrum Press, 1971).
I came across this abandoned Fàbrica Manequim on my way up several flights of stairs in this old building in Lisbon’s Chiado. I was looking for the shop of a camera repairman ---who I found and who masterly fixed my Mamiya. I was into the space, and I was equally fascinated and disturbed. Intense replicas of humans and human parts covered the floors and walls. It was as if the entire factory of workers left for coffee over decades ago and never came back. Molds, paint cans, and half-finished mannequins everywhere. Even invoices left in the typewriter.
I returned to photograph twice, both with the living human form--- returning a third time to be astonished it had been condemned and gutted without warning. This studio was lost--- but the real story only began...
