A retrospective collection of classical black-and-white photographs by Blair Polischuk - a Canadian artist living with ALS.
With opening comments from Bryan Adams, Bruce Barnbaum Freeman Patterson, and John Sexton, Archetypes features 46 of Polischuk’s images created from 1995 to 2010 along with his introductory monologue entitled The Sound of Light.
In 2011, Polischuk lost the use of his arms and hands to the progressive and terminal neurological disease known as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). His career path shifted from that of an active mid-career fine art photographer, to an artist living and working with ALS.
This book is dedicated to the hundreds of thousands of people around the world who are living with ALS, their families and caregivers, and to the men and women who are seeking a cure to this elusive and insidious disease.
