Photographer Paul Rockett dies
Toronto-born photographer Paul Rockett, who shot more than 100 magazine covers during his career has died at his home in Vancouver at the age of 90 following a battle with cancer, according to the Canadian Press.

Using technologies popular in Europe in the 1940s, Rockett was the first to bring the technique of using people in motion into fashion photography in Canada. Toronto Life called Rockett “Canadian photography’s only star,” aside from the late Yousuf Karsh, according to the Canadian Press.

Rockett moved to Vancouver in the 1970s and worked until his late 80s, shooting film documentaries for the CBC and B.C. government. He is survived by five children, nine grandchildren and several great grandchildren.
