  • Rosamond Norbury

  • Rosamond Norbury is a Vancouver photograpgher with a background in printmaking. She was born in the foothills of the Himalayas and schooled in Paris. Her acclaimed first book "Behind the Chutes: The mystique of the Rodeo Cowboy" profiles the men who live up to the legends of the Wild West. It was nominated for the ALA/ YALSA best books for young adults in 1994. Her work has appeared in Canadian Art and Saturday Night. Using two separate printing plates to give a duotone effect takes the black and white print far beyond the photographic process to produce a richness not found in traditional black & white imagery.
