Historia biográfica

Gordon Meinecke (1930- ) worked as a commercial photographer in Germany and Canada from the mid-1940s to 1996, photographing a range of subjects including portraiture and industrial equipment. He undertook his first photographic apprenticeship in darkroom techniques in Hanover, Germany in 1945, which was quickly followed by an apprenticeship in studio methods. Shortly thereafter, Meinecke began his career as an industrial photographer in Heidelberg, Germany. He emigrated to Canada in the fall of 1951, where he briefly settled in Ottawa, Ontario, working for the Lingard Photography Studio before relocating to Vancouver, British Columbia. In Vancouver, his practice broadened to include a variety of commercial and studio clients, from the food industry to wedding photography. Meinecke opened his own studio, Gordon Meinecke Photography, in Toronto, Ontario in 1971. He worked primarily with a commercial client base during this phase of his career, which included retailers such as Eatons and Electrohome, automobile manufacturers Ford and GM, and food production company General Foods. Although Meinecke retired from professional photography and closed his studio in 1996, he is currently a member of the Photographic Historical Society of Canada and continues to be an active member of Toronto’s photographic community.

Historial de custodia

Alcance y contenido

The fonds consists of photographic chemicals, printing paper, film, dry plates, pamphlets, journals, trade circulars and photo bulbs collected by Gordon Meinecke during the course of his career, and from personal interest as a collector of historical artifacts. Meinecke worked in various photographic formats including 11x14, 8x10, 4x5, 2 ¼, and 35mm, sometimes producing prints as large as 30x40 inches. He primarily employed Kodak material for these purposes, but films from other manufacturers of photographic supplies can be found in the fonds, including Agfa Ansco Company, Ilford Limited, Polaroid and Triple Print Film Labs. Antique film packages, produced by companies like The Stanley Dry Plate Company or Dufaycolor Inc., are mainly empty or opened, and were collected for their historical value rather than for photographic use. A selection of photo lamps and flashbulbs from Osram, General Electric and the Wabash Photolamp Corporation are included in the collection, as well as two glass plate drying racks.
