David Suzuki speaks in Kits this Friday on new book 'Legacy' and mobilizing the elderly for environmental causes.
David Suzuki speaks in Kits this Friday on new book ‘Legacy’ and mobilizing the elderly for environmental causes.
Photographing David Suzuki, the thing I remember most is how busy he was—my photo shoot with him amounted to a 10-minute window wedged between a phone interview with the International Baccalaureate and a conference on how to mobilize the elderly for environmental causes.
He told me with concern, and perhaps a little bitterness, that voices of the elderly are often ignored and, as a senior himself, he wants to see that change. Seniors are concerned for the environment and as a demographic can make a push for social and economic reform to reduce the ecological footprint of our species.
Which brings me to David’s new book, The Legacy: An Elder’s Vision For Our Sustainable Future, in which he reflects on the world’s population growth and the explosion of science and technology within his own living memory. With these monstrous ingredients for ecological disaster, it is interesting that a scientist would end his list of concerns with an endorsement of faith in human imagination and the generosity of Mother Nature.
You have the chance to see this preeminent activist speak his mind on September 17, 2010, at 7:30 p.m. at the Kitsilano Secondary School Auditorium (2550 West 10th Ave, Vancouver). He’ll also be in Surrey the following day at Southridge Jr. School (2656 160th St, Surrey). Find a full listing of his book tour stops via D&M Publishers.
Below are a few portraits and candid moments I was able to capture with David before he was off again to save the planet.
