It all started in 1981, during a psychology conference that Ami Rokach attended in Ottawa. Awaiting a flight home the day after his colleagues had left the conference, Ami recalls: “I remember standing on the centrepiece of my hotel, looking out, not knowing anyone in Ottawa, and there was a thick glass between the world and myself. I couldn’t feel or hear anything, and suddenly it dawned on me—that’s probably how loneliness feels.”

In mid-20th Century Quebec, Canada, a culinary revolution began: cheese curds on French fries. Like peanut butter and chocolate, the odd combination of cheese curds and French fries became a crowd pleaser. The cheesy goodness item was called 50-50: a mixture of 50% cheese curds and 50% fries. But something was missing, a sauce to hold everything together. Gravy answered the call, and the new name for this concoction was called “mixte” (French for “mixed”). Popularity ensued, and when large restaurant chains sold this hot commodity, the menu name was changed to “poutine”.

Photography as an industry is not a new concept, as the idea of photography dates all the way back to the time of the famous Greek philosopher Aristotle, with Joseph Niepce creating the first photograph in 1827. The contemporary forms of photography that we’re all familiar with came about in the form of instant photography in 1948, when the Polaroid camera was introduced to the world. Since the mid-to-late 1980s, the pronounced growth and advancements in technology has further changed the photography industry. Digital photography was introduced during the late 1990s, and cellphones have also evolved to feature digital photography and videography capabilities.
