Presents 100 images originally shot for the Georgia Straight, the Vancouver Sun, The Province, and Vlad's own pleasure. These photographs document Vancouver at a moment of profound change, when the buttoned-down, rainswept city of developer Tom "Terrific" Campbell was being washed away by the social and cultural wave of the Sixties. Vlad was on hand to record the cityscape, the business suits and severe coifs, and the hippie phenomenon that pushed all of that to the side. The music was a massive part of this, and Seize the Time includes a fantastic selection of rock musicians who played in Vancouver, Seattle, and nearby music festivals: Cream, Blind Faith, Phil Ochs, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Dylan and The Band, and many more. The music festivals, the protests, the squats on the North Shore mudflats, and the passion of that moment in time are indelibly captured by his photographs.

Keremidschieff's black and white photos are of people (especially protesters and counter culture youth), and places in Vancouver and musicians in and around Vancouver in the late 60s and early 70s. They really evoke that time.

Okay, I know the old joke "if you remember the sixties, you weren't there" and it may be true; but this book of photos will help you remember! Some fabulous photos, including many pictures taken at the Stanley Park Easter Be-In's, concerts (with impossibly young-looking people like Dylan and Clapton), and the streets and beaches around Vancouver. Very glad Keremidschieff was there with his camera.
