A great portrait is a collaboration between subject and photographer. It is up to the photographer to create an atmosphere which allows people to express themselves naturally. Hauser’s integrity, humour and intense interest in people has made him one of Canada’s most notable photographers. The National Archives in Ottawa houses a large collection of his portraits of artists, writers and musicians that he has photographed throughout his forty plus year career. His work is also collected by the Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography. Hauser is renowned for his black & white silver as well as platinum prints of the highest quality. These archival portraits will last for many generations if properly matted and framed. It is Hauser’s belief that photographs are not just about today – but they gain importance in our lives over time. His portraits reveal an enduring moment to be treasured.
