Get Featured: Victor Anthony
Victor is a man of few words, so we will let his images do the talking. Come and check out this wonderful use of light and shadow.

Victor Anthony is a self-taught fine art photographer currently living and working in British Columbia, Canada. He and his wife Joëlle emigrated to BC from Victor’s native Tennessee in 2007. He began his visual arts journey in 1978 when he discovered the spontaneous wonder of the Magnum Agency photographers. To this day, his images have that same humanistic quality that is so difficult to achieve but so powerful to behold when realized on film. Victor has had several one-man shows of his work as well as having participated in numerous group shows over the years. His primary ongoing project is a body of monochrome work called MADE IN BC, 100+ photographs created since his arrival in Canada.

I discovered the work of the Magnum Agency in 1978 and since that aha moment, slice-of-life humanistic photography is all I’ve ever wanted to do. The images presented here are from the late 1980s which was a particularly productive time for me.  I was doing a lot of travelling, always with a Leica slung over my shoulder and my eyes wide open.

    I have a question for Mr. Anthony.

    If the images, he makes, are from small format negatives, then what print size does he use for an exhibition?

    And this begs another question.

    Does he also use medium format?

    Thank you.

    Mr. Anthony,

    What is your go-to camera (which Leica) and film for your work?

    The BC portfolio is excellent, but would benefit by eliminating about a third of the images.

    To Joseph and Gregg: I work in 35mm exclusively and the biggest prints I make for exhibition are 11×14. I use a variety of cameras but my current go-to rig is a Leica M3 with a 50mm Summicron and Ilford XP2. All of the photographs featured here were made with an M6, the 50 ‘cron and Tri-X.

    To Robert: I agree with your take on the BC photographs. That folio is a work-in-progress and when I get around to making a final edit, I suspect more than 1/3 of the images won’t make the cut. Thanks for looking.

    Correction: The bicycles photo was done with the M6 and a 28mm Rokkor.
