The exhibition "I love here now" uses the genres of still life, portraiture and landscape to present a photographic portrait of Yoshiko de Forest. Born in Kyoto Japan in 1931, Yoshiko Hasegawa, immigrated to Winnipeg, Manitoba after meeting and marrying a Canadian. Leaving behind her home and a teaching career, she began a new life as a homemaker and mother, raising three children. "I love here now" is a portrait of Yoshiko by her daughter, Vancouver based photographer Maya de Forest.
