POLITICIANS

"

Overriding all of this talented photographer Gail Harvey’s political work there is a sense of personality that comes through above and beyond sense of place or platitude. While so many others in her profession search for the readily available and obvious photo opportunity, she tends to look first for the irony.

She is a photographer who interacts with her subjects, one who has the ability to vanish and be forgotten, who knows where to turn and who knows when to let the subject make his own statement. The ability to capture the small private moment in the midst of a large public event is all the more precious in an era when spontaneity is carefully packaged. Brave are the photographers like Gail Harvey who will ignore the set piece of the event and concentrate on what an open eye might find from another vantage.

- Roy MacGregor, political journalist
