Norman Epelbaum
History Biographical
Born on October 12, 1928 in Kobryn, Poland, Norman Epelbaum grew up in a culturally Jewish household and was one of the youngest of eight children. In his early teens, Norman joined the Polish army and was stationed in Siberia throughout the war. He was a platoon leader and served from 1943 until 1946. After the war, Norman went to Israel but immigrated to Canada in the early 1950s and worked in Ottawa. While he was in Ottawa he worked for Malak Karsh, brother of famed Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh. It was not long after his arrival in Ottawa however that Norman moved to Montreal, attracted by its thriving Jewish community. Norman worked as a technician, retouching photographs until November 1956 when he opened his own business on Parc Avenue called Regent Photo Studio. Norman inherited his passion of photography from his father and grandfather and captured important events in people’s lives over the years. From 1956 onwards Regent Photo Studios was a mainstay in the Montreal Jewish community; photographing thousands of weddings, bar mitzvahs, sweet 16 parties, and both large and small events. Norman's work also reflected the diversity of the Parc Avenue area as his negatives include numerous events from the Polish, Italian, Chinese and Greek communities. Norman continued working in photographs right until his death at the age of 82 on March 20, 2011.
