A portrait of Robert Tilley, the best friend I’ve made since I came to Canada 4 years ago as an international student. I took this portrait one day before Robert turned 73 years old. Robert's grandfather, born in 1882 and living a legendary life in Canada’s Northern territories and Atlantic region, had the nickname "Duke," an abbreviation of his full name William Marmaduke Tilley. I think the name Duke is perfect for this portrait. The coat Robert wears in the portrait was made by himself 40-some years ago.
