The Power of Passion

V. Tony Hauser

Seeking to pay tribute to Canadians who make a difference to our lives, photographer V. Tony Hauser has photographed over sixty personalities that are icons of inspiration for him. From a wide selection of artists, social activists, scientists and altruistic citizens he invited individuals to reveal themselves not only in sessions before his camera but also in words. Each portrait is accompanied by a written passage that expresses in the words of the sitter what he or she considers to be their driving force. The Power of Passion is generously sponsored by Baker & McKenzie LLP Barristers & Solicitors ( and Brookfield Properties Corporation at BCE Place (
