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.

Deadly triangle
A London teacher and one man are found dead in a car. Another man is shot in a parking lot.
By Joe BELANGER, Patrick MALONEY and Joe MATYAS, Sun Media, Mon., December 10, 2007
A London teacher is dead and a colleague recovering in hospital after a stunning parking lot ambush yesterday that preceded an apparent murder-suicide 300 kilometres away.
Angela SEDORE, 40, was found dead in her sport utility vehicle near Peterborough just hours after Ed DICKSON/DIXON -- a fellow teacher at Ashley Oaks elementary school -- was shot by SEDORE's boyfriend outside a south London plaza, family members say.
SEDORE's sister said she had been dating a man named Ray KING for two years.
The bodies of KING and SEDORE were found, apparently shot to death, in her sport utility vehicle south of Peterborough following a police chase.
"This guy obviously came for one thing and that was to kill all three of them," DICKSON/DIXON's father, Ken DICKSON/DIXON, said.
DICKSON/DIXON's father said it appears a phone call to his son's home from a colleague whom his son had just started dating may have set the tragic chain of events in motion early yesterday.
DICKSON/DIXON, 36, told his father SEDORE sounded distraught and wanted to meet him, so he decided to go see if everything was all right. He later described to his father a chilling scene.
Upon arriving at the parking lot outside the A and P store at Wellington and Commissioners roads about 1: 40 a.m., he approached the woman's vehicle when a man hopped out, armed with a gun.
The man fired, the bullet ripping through one side of DICKSON/DIXON's stomach and out the other, then through the window of his Jeep, he told his father.
"If he didn't turn (his body,) he'd be a dead man," Ken DICKSON/DIXON said after visiting his son in the hospital. "A gunshot wound to the stomach, you're a dead man."
Remarkably, Ed DICKSON/DIXON told his father he jotted down the licence plate number as the vehicle drove off.
Within an hour, SEDORE's apartment on the second floor of a quaint Hyman Street home was swarming with police officers whose dramatic arrival stunned neighbours.
Durham regional officers, east of Toronto, were on alert for SEDORE's sport utility vehicle in connection with the London shooting and would soon be following it.
About 4: 45 a.m. yesterday, the Ontario Provincial Police was asked to follow the sport utility vehicle as it travelled north on Highway 115, which runs from Highway 401 to Peterborough, SEDORE's home town.
The sport utility vehicle drove over a police spike belt and went into a ditch, about 10 kilometres south of Peterborough. SEDORE and a man found inside were dead of apparent gunshot wounds.
Police sources told Sun Media the dead man in the sport utility vehicle is Ray KING, 41.
A neighbour, who described SEDORE as a "wonderful" person, said the teacher had been dating a man named Ray.
Having dramatically changed his appearance -- dropping 30 pounds and getting a new haircut -- he was visiting her in London this weekend, the neighbour said.
Officers from the Ontario Provincial Police and city police were at SEDORE's apartment for much of yesterday, taking away a slew of items including her computer, a neighbour said.
SEDORE's birth mother, who only met her now-grown daughter three years ago, was stunned by yesterday's tragedy.
"There's no words to say how I feel," Johanna YATEMAN said when contacted at her Peterborough home. "I feel great, great loss."
The Special Investigations Unit, which probes any civilian death involving police, is investigating the case.
"This is a tragic circumstance and there's a lot to be done," the Special Investigations Unit's lead investigator, Allan EATON, said.
Ken DICKSON/DIXON, who travelled to London from Detroit during the weekend for a family Christmas party, said his son was conscious but struggling in the aftermath of his close call. "He's starting the goofy stuff -- 'I should have called the police (before going),' " he said.
Several teachers at Ashley Oaks, reached at their homes yesterday, declined comment.
A huge swath of the parking lot at the busy south-end plaza -- which houses several restaurants and a busy grocery store -- was taped off for hours as officers scoured around DICKSON/DIXON's green Jeep, a bullet hole clearly visible in its side window.
Shoppers coming in and out of the A and P were stunned by the scene.
"This city is getting bad," said one elderly woman. "You've got to have eyes in the back of your head."
DICKSON/DIXON's shooting happened fewer than 24 hours after the death of Anthony BRUN in an Old South home a few blocks away. A man [later identified as Gordon Tyler McCURDY] has been charged with second-degree murder in the 24-year-old's death.
What Happened
Late Saturday Night: Londoner Ed DICKSON/DIXON gets a distraught-sounding call from a fellow teacher at Ashley Oaks elementary school. He goes to meet her at the A and P store parking lot at Wellington and Commissioners roads, arriving about 1: 30 a.m. yesterday.
A man with a gun exits the woman's vehicle and fires a shot that rips through DICKSON/DIXON's stomach. The vehicle takes off. Wounded, DICKSON/DIXON jots down the licence plate and calls police.
Yesterday, 4: 45 a.m.: Durham Regional Police ask Peterborough Ontario Provincial Police to intercept an sport utility vehicle, wanted in a London investigation, along Highway 115, which extends north from the 401 toward Peterborough.
The sport utility vehicle runs over a police spike belt south of Hwy. 7A and ends up in a ditch, 10 km south of Peterborough.
Ontario Provincial Police find the bodies of a man and a woman Ray KING of Belleville and London teacher Angela SEDORE -- in the sport utility vehicle. They appear to have been shot to death. The sport utility vehicle is registered to SEDORE.

Widow found slain
Her son is charged with murder in the death in the complex in Westmount.
By Katherina DEHAAS, Patrick MALONEY and Daniela SIMUNAC, Sun Media, Wed., December 26, 2007
Cranbrook Trace is a caring little community, a clutch of high-end London condos where residents greet their neighbours by name and keep an eye out for one another.
Some in the Westmount complex would dutifully check in on Helen VICARY, calling every few days to say hello and see how the kind, elderly widow was getting along.
Then, a few weeks ago, she stopped answering the phone.
She was no longer seen picking up her mail, either.
Now, a 48-year-old man, identified by neighbours as VICARY's son, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of a woman whose body was found at his mother's home on Christmas Eve.
Police haven't publicly identified the woman.
"We did notice that we hadn't seen (VICARY) in awhile," Eric JOHNSON, who lives a few doors away, said yesterday. "In the last month, we hadn't seen her at all."
Monday, London police swooped down on the VICARY home, unit 23 at 505 Cranbrook Rd., while searching for someone reported missing that morning.
A woman was found dead inside.
That night, neighbours say police went door-to-door asking about Helen VICARY.
Craig James VICARY, 48, whom, neighbours identified as Helen's son, is charged with second-degree murder. He had been living at the condo, police said yesterday.
With investigators still scouring the home for evidence, neighbours who would be otherwise occupied with the holiday were shaking their heads over the city's sixth homicide of the year.
"Obviously, we're all shocked by it," said one man. "It's really not hit home yet. We really haven't had a whole lot of time to reflect on it."
One neighbour said VICARY moved into the condo about three years ago but had lived alone since her husband died Christmas Day two years ago. Her grown children live in the area.
Investigators were first called to the condo Monday after a report of a missing person. Police haven't said who notified them of the disappearance.
Police then searched for a brown, four-door Pontiac Grand Am, which was registered to Helen VICARY.
JOHNSON, who described the elderly VICARY as kind and friendly, said the homicide is "unnerving… a close community. A lot of elderly people and we watch out for each other."
The Christmas Eve discovery marked the third serious incident in London this month. Early December 8, 24-year-old Anthony BRUN was found injured outside an Old South home and later died in hospital. Gordon Tyler McCURDY, 33, is charged with second-degree murder. Later that day, teacher Ed DICKSON/DIXON was seriously hurt in a south-end parking lot shooting. Angela SEDORE, who taught with DICKSON/DIXON, was killed in a murder-suicide, apparently at the hands of Ray KOVACS, whose body was found in her sport utility vehicle after a police chase.
