An evening with Laszlo Montreal,
"Simplicity in Portraiture" (Monday, September 25, 2017)
The internationally acclaimed photographer, Laszlo, has rightly been called the "court photographer to the Canadian establishment" by Peter C. Newman. Laszlo (like Cher, Madonna and Napoleon, he gets by using just his first name) spends most of his professional time photographing corporate titans, wealthy socialites and famous artists. It can now be said of the photographer himself that he has reached an enviable stage of public recognition. He has developed into a major brand name himself.
Born in Hungary, Laszlo Mezei emigrated to Canada after the 1956 Hungarian uprising. He studied photography and the History of Art in both his adopted country and New York City. His recently published large-format book, Laszlo Portraits (Les Editions Rogers, Montreal), features stunning photographs of fifty-five distinguished Canadians and acts like an anthem of gratitude from Laszlo to Canada.
In addition to selected images from his portrait portfolio, Laszlo will also present images from his current point and shoot approach to Fine Art photography
