Volker SEDING, 63 Artist
He spent decades photographing animals behind bars
By F.F. LANGAN, Special to The Globe and Mail, Page S10
Toronto -- Volker SEDING used to visit the Berlin Zoo as a boy after the Second World War. To get there, he passed women in the street stacking up rubble from the destruction caused by Allied bombing and Russian artillery shells that levelled the city. At the zoo, he liked to talk to an ape in its cage.
Later, as a photographer, he travelled the world capturing images of lonely animals in city zoos. The photographs from his project are now part of the permanent collection at the Art Gallery of Ontario, and at other museums in the United States and Europe.
Mr. SEDING, who was thrice married and devoted more than 25 years to taking museum-quality photographs, was one of the top artistic photographers in Canada. Some of his pictures are black and white, some are colour, while still others were shot in black and white, then painted by hand. Most were shot on a large-format Linhof camera that used plates. After each exposure, a new plate was inserted in the back of the camera. Later, he modified it with a special adapter that accepted a custom-made roll of film. He was technically skilled and built his own cameras from parts. He kept only the negatives he considered his best.
"In his lifetime, he kept maybe 200 to 250 negatives," said Stephen BULGER, owner of the Toronto gallery where Mr. SEDING exhibited his work. "Some photographs, such as the zoo series, were in editions of 75. Others were in editions as limited as five or eight."
Mr. SEDING spent decades on his zoo project, yet considered only 60 photographs worthy of it. Many of them provide the illustrations in his book Captive.
"SEDING told me he would wait by a chosen cage for hours and usually even days in order capture a certain revelatory motion or movement," said Gary Michael Dault, who wrote the text for Captive.
Mr. SEDING's second wife, Janet DAWIDOWICZ, who is also a photographer, often accompanied him. "We might visit four zoos and he would only take an image if he thought everything was perfect. The light had to be right and he was such a perfectionist, the images were hard to find," she said. "He knew ahead of time which image he was looking for, and he only shot what he wanted."
The photographer's reasons for concentrating on animals in zoos were quite simple.
"Since I was a kid, the zoo has always been a magical place," Mr. SEDING once wrote. "Where else can one go where life on this planet is presented in such density? Sadly, it is also a place where some of the animals make their last stand.
"To me, there is still time for contemplation for what is left of the animal world and in this sense, the camera here is simply a research tool."
After zoos, his next favourite subject was old buildings, usually in run-down neighbourhoods of Toronto, Montreal and New York. The series was called Mainstreets, and like the Zoo Portfolio, it took him years. If a building had been updated, he concentrated on the first three floors to capture what the structure looked like before its gentrification.
Later, he tried another technique. Using a super-wide lens, he turned the camera on its side to take a vertical shot. That way, he could concentrate on a single building, rather than its streetscape.
He also did studio work and liked to take portraits of people sometimes blurring the faces -- and worked on still life images, including hand-painted work of fruit floating in the air. More experimental images came from working with plywood, which he covered in wet cement. When it dried, he would place Chinese herbs on the surface and move them around until he achieved what he felt was balance. Then he'd take a photo of it. "Sometimes he could do one in an afternoon. Other times, it took him a month," said Mr. BULGER.
Volker SEDING's early years were spent in a city under siege. Canadian and British bombers hit Berlin by night, Americans by day. His early life was coloured by the war and its bleak aftermath. His father was an engineer who did not serve in the military.
"He often spoke of the hardships of growing up in postwar Berlin," Ms. DAWIDOWICZ said. "German history was difficult for him, but he married two Jewish women."
Mr. SEDING studied film and photography at art school in Hanover. He then apprenticed to photographers and did some work for German movie director Rainer Werner Fassbinder. One day, he saw an advertisement in a newspaper for a photographer's assistant in Corner Brook, Newfoundland.
"I had this romantic vision of Canada as the last frontier. I wanted to meet people who lived close to nature," he told a reporter in 1980. He arrived at Gander Airport in February and was struck by the beauty of frozen lakes and a landscape of stark pine trees.
Mr. SEDING once referred to his job in Corner Brook as being "the town photographer." He got married there and after a year or so, he moved with his wife, Diane, to Ottawa where he made documentaries and industrial films, mostly for Crawley Films.
In the late 1970s, he began concentrating on fine-art photography. He became successful, but never rich. Early photographs sold for about $450; later ones fetched as much as $5,000.
In the past year, Mr. SEDING suffered from kidney stones. He was treated, but the pain continued. His doctors told him not to worry. By the time he learned he also had cancer, he had three weeks to live.
Volker SEDING was born in Berlin on January 2, 1943. He died of cancer in Toronto on October 21, 2007. He was 63. He is survived by his wife Barbara Levy, and by his son Mark from an earlier marriage to Diane Williams. He also leaves sisters Gisela and Brigitte.
A memorial will take place at the Stephen Bulger Gallery, 1026 Queen St. W., Toronto, at 4 p.m. on Sunday.

He Was Aide-De-Camp To The Governor General
By Tom HAWTHORN, Page S10
Victoria -- Baron CHATFIELD of Ditching, who served as aide-de-camp to a governor general during the Second World War, has died at his Oak Bay home. He was 90.
As a young lieutenant in the Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve, he was at Pier 61 in Halifax in 1940 to greet the Earl of Athlone on his arrival to take up the post of Governor General. He served the earl throughout the war, attending him at such events as the 1943 New Year's levee at the Parliament Buildings in Ottawa. The soldier also was feted in his own honour, as a former Ontario cabinet minister and wife hosted a tea at the Toronto Hunt Club in 1941.

His father, Alfred Ernle Montacute CHATFIELD, served as captain of the H.M.S. Medina during a tour of India by George V in 1911-12. He was decorated for his actions at the Battle of Jutland in the Great War, and was serving as First Sea Lord of the Admiralty when raised to the peerage as Baron CHATFIELD in 1937. Two years later, he was briefly in the war cabinet as the minister for co-ordination of defence.
The first Lord CHATFIELD died in 1967, his son succeeding to the title.
The 2nd Lord CHATFIELD died on September 30. He leaves his wife of 38 years, the former Elizabeth BULMAN, and a sister, Katharine DUCKWORTH, an officer of the Order of the British Empire. He was predeceased by a sister who died in 1943.
