The photograph was taken in my studio on November 4th. 2004. He had just celebrated his 80th birthday.We spent about one hour talking about Japan while I was photographing him. I could tell how much he loved Japan. He was relaxed and spontaneous all though the session.
I was so grateful for his generosity to have given me an opportunity to photograph him.
I will miss the wonderful, warm person he was as well, as a brilliant architect who made all British Columbians proud
