The Canadian Photographic Portfolio Society publishes limited edition photographic portfolios of work by Canadian artists. Formed in 1986, the Society’s aim is to support the development of Canadian photographic art and raise its international profile. We are a non-profit society operated by a volunteer board of arts professionals. We commission works from established artists who have already made an important contribution to contemporary art.
Each portfolio is conceived as a cohesive artwork. They are elegantly designed with a consideration for each artist’s particular sensibility. The prints are museum quality and are usually boxed in custom-made, archival storage cases. They are generally produced in an edition of fifteen or fewer and further printing of images in the same size is restricted. Portfolio prices reflect current market value and are set at approximately sixty percent of the cost of purchasing the individual prints.
Our portfolios have been acquired by numerous private, corporate and public collections both in Canada and abroad, including: Le Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography, the National Gallery of Canada, and Le Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
Starting prices for our editions are 60% of the retail value of the individual prints. Prices are periodically adjusted to reflect current market value and availability.
Please note: As our editions are small and often sell out quickly, we cannot guarantee that the editions listed on this website will still be available. The portfolios by Raymonde April, Stan Douglas, Geoffrey James, and Ian Wallace are sold out.
