It’s been a few weeks since news came to light that Gord Downie of the Tragically Hip came forward to advise his fans that he faced, and has been facing a particularly nasty bout of Cancer. Unfortunately the cancer diagnosis is not good, and will likely take Downie’s life in due course. Such dire news, however will not stop the band from performing one last tour with as much energy and love for their fans as they have in the past. I am happy to have had the opportunity to photograph this eccentric man on two separate occasions. I’m also happy to share some of my favorite photos.
