Dates of existence


Erol H. Baykal opened "The Gallery of Photography" in North Vancouver in 1969. This led to a sponsorship from the National Film Board of Canada (N.F.B.) for running photography workshops and exhibiting N.F.B. photography exhibitions. The gallery caught fire and Baykal moved on to other endeavors. He joined the crew of the Habitat Forum as site photographer in 1975. He later worked with Greenpeace and was assigned to the San Francisco chapter. He also participated in the 1977 Greenpeace seal campaign in Labrador.

After having a family Baykal worked in the framing and gallery retail business and then the corporate world. He moved to Long Beach around 1990 and now lives in Cambodia.
