Name of creator
"Selwyn Lloyd Pullan, a distinguished Canadian photographer, born in Vancouver in 1922. He attended Vancouver Technical School and served in the Canadian Navy aboard H.M.C.S. Dunvegan during the Second World War. He also attended the prestigious Art Center School in Los Angeles were he studied under Ansel Adams on a Veteran's grant. He returned to Vancouver and specialized in building photography and was appreciated by architects as one who saw buildings from the architects' point of view. He was published in Western Homes and Living, Maclean's, the Vancouver Sun, the New York Times, Canadian Interiors, Progressive Architecture, Architectural Digest, and photographed for many advertising agencies. He helped establish Professional Colour Prints in Kitsilano in the '60s and spread his interests to pioneer digital sound recordings where he noticed that sound and light have similar characteristics and a similar vocabulary. His photographs have documented B.C. mid-century modernism and left the west coast of Canada an archive of outstanding architectural creation."
