Photographer's Note

In the heart of bustling downtown Vancouver B.C., Canada, Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden offers a cultural experience. It is a feast for the senses and the mind, acclaimed for providing peace, tranquility, and delight for the nature lover, cultural tourist, philosopher, and sightseeing visitor.

Dr. Sun Yat-Sen is credited with leading the 1911 revolution that finally overthrew the Qing dynasty. He became the first president of the Republic of China in 1912, but after only a few short months in office he resigned as President and devoted his efforts to the economic development of China. A struggle and battle which he endured for the rest of his life.

Since his death in 1925, Dr. Sun Yat Sen's persona has evolved into a heroic symbol of modern China. He is canonized as Kuo Fu, the Father of the Country.
